Woolly Mammoth at the Hull & East Riding Museum

Woolly Mammoth at the Hull & East Riding Museum


Enter a world where 235 million years of history is brought to life. Come face to face with a wooly mammoth, encounter a mysterious crew of wooden warriors and discover a unique Iron Age sword. Located in the attractive Museums Quarter, the Hull and East Riding Museum boasts some of the most spectacular natural history and archaeology displays in Britain.

Highlights of the collections include the only dinosaur bones to have been found in East Yorkshire, mysterious Bronze Age warriors and spectacular treasures from the middle ages. From majestic mammoths to Saxon invaders, visitors can look forward to an experience that is unique, educational and - above all - fun. New modern displays take you back to the past. Using original material and reconstructed scenes, the displays show just what life was like and how people used to live.
