Unlike the Wilberforce house, visitors have the opportunity to interact with trams, trains and shops as they were last century. We would visit again

“fun for all takes you back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I took my granddaughter a few months ago. We loved the way you lived in the past. How the shops were set out compared with how they are now. My partner was very interested in the busses as he was a driver for Hull Corporation in the late 1980,s and he drove in a bus very similar to the one in the museum. A very good and interesting visit...
