We visited during our week stay up north and can honestly say without doubt, this was the best museum experience we've ever had. Everyone was incredibly helpful and we loved that they shared their knowledge with us. We will be back again soon. Thankyou so much 😊

We had a visit here and we learnt so much from the fantastic volunteers about the wars and the type of lives soldiers and civilians would have. Definitely worth a visit.

We bumped into this tiny museum while we were looking for a souvenir to take back home, and it was the best thing we saw in Hull. Staff is super nice and friendly, they walked us around their exposition about WWI and WWII, explained us what was life on the frontline and the risk of walking the battlefield, showed us the strenght any soldier had to have, both mental and phisical (their equipment is incredibly heavy), and much more. Make sure to head over here as the experience you'll have will remind you how much a war can be wrong, and we are all brothers after all.

We are a wholly voluntary organisation formed to raise The Hull People's Memorial in the centre of Kingston upon Hull, the most devastated place in the whole UK during World War Two.  The memorial will be raised in Paragon Street in May 2018, but our museum and gift shop is open now, in Whitefriargate, Kingston upon Hull.
