Hull’s Hands on History Museum is reopening for the first time since lockdown.

The museum is due to reopen on Saturday 14 May. It will then be open as normal from 12.00 noon to 4.00 pm every second and fourth Saturday of each month.

The Hands on History Museum is situated in Hull’s Old Grammar School where William Wilberforce studied.

Hands on History offers a fascinating glimpse into Victorian times, the Story of Hull and also features an Egyptian Gallery

This gallery is home to a genuine 2,600 year old mummy and unique replicas of King Tutankhamen’s treasures.

Simon Green, Director of Cultural Services at Hull Culture and Leisure said: “We are delighted to be able to re-open Hands on History to the public as we know how much people of all ages enjoy their visit.”

Entry to the museum is free.
