Maritime Museum


An exhibition that unites Hull’s own whaling collections with works from JMW Turner, Turner & The Whale offers unique insight into Hull’s finest artists and the artistic mind of one of the art world’s most revered landscape painters.

On loan from the Tate’s national collection, Turner’s three rare whaling scenes and one maritime scene date from the period when Hull held the title of the UK’s largest whaling port, bringing context to our own nationally recognised pieces and providing the perfect complement to the Turner Prize that bears his name.

In partnership with the University of York and the Tate. Supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Hull Maritime Museum’s opening times are:

Monday-Wednesday: 10am-5pm Thursday: 10am-7.30pm Friday-Saturday: 10am-5pm Sunday: 11am-4.30pm
