Hands on History Museum

Humber Museums Partnership - Hands on History Museum

The Hands On History Museum is in the old Grammar School where William Wilberforce studied. The museum houses the story of Hull and its people and offers a fascinating glimpse into Victorian times. The museum also features an Egyptian Gallery.


Local history collections, from toys and everyday utensils to high fashion costume, detail the history of Hull and its people while hands on displays offer a fascinating glimpse into the life of a Victorian child. An Egyptian gallery is also home to a 2,600 year old mummy and unique replica treasures from King Tutankhamun’s tomb.

Hands on History Museum is open 12 noon to 4pm on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month.
Admission to the Hands on History Museum is free.
