Housed in a historic building in the city centre, this museum has superb exhibits and displays relating to Hull's maritime traditions.

The building was originally the Victorian Dock Offices, designed by Christopher G. Wray and originally opened in 1871. The detailing is of high quality, and has been beautifully restored.
