Family Activities

There are lots of activities aimed at children and their families at Hull History Centre. For more information about any of the activities listed, please ask any member of staff or see our Family events listing.

For families to do together:

History Makers - our art and Lego activities on a Saturday morning. Each month we take a different theme - all inspired by our collections - check out our Facebook site to see the masterpieces created at previous events.

Things children can do on their own:

Children’s Books  Library books for all ages which range from toddler friendly to more informative books for the older child. There are a wide range of subjects available, which include noisy knights, medieval Britain, post-war Britain, A history of toys, the Romans and a collection of “Horrible Histories”!

Jigsaws  We have two 35-piece photograph puzzles, which show the site of Hull History Centre in the 20th and 21st century. These are behind the enquiry desk. They need to be signed out and in. The puzzles are quite big and will need to be done on one of the library desks at the back, in the arcade on the floor, or on the Welcome Desk.

Family Learning Activities  More free fun activities, crafts and events which are part of Hull Museums events programme. Please ask for further details.
