The oldest secular building in Hull, Hands on History Museum, now proves a fascinating insight into Victorian Hull.
Formerly the old Grammar School where William Wilberforce (leader of the movement to abolish slave trade) studied, Hull’s oldest secular building c 1583 is now home to the Hands on History Museum.
Here you can glimpse into the story of Hull in Victorian times including clothes they wore (dressing up optional!) and games they played. There is also an Egyptian Gallery, home to a 2,600 year old mummy and unique replicas of King Tutankhamun's treasures. Hands on History is part of a collection of 8 free museums in Hull’s city centre.
