Have you ever visited a museum and wondered what the story is behind that unicorn horn, or this elephant’s foot?


Now is your chance to discover amazing untruths about the most wonderful and curious artefacts selected from across the whole Hull Museum service and Burton Constable Hall. Exploring a quirky cornucopia of stuff, this exhibition draws on the comedy-writing talents of Hull’s youngsters, joined by one of Britain’s best-loved comedians, Bill Bailey.


And we might reveal the equally unusual truth behind the collection too.


Produced with the Burton Constable Hall Foundation. Broader Curious Collections project supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. Bill Bailey’s involvement supported by Hull City Council.
