Museums Quarter in Hull

Kingston upon Hull is one of the biggest cities in East Yorkshire (population of 250.000 in 2014)

We spend a lovely Sunday visiting a couple of hands-on museums and learning a little bit of Hull’s flying heroine, Amy Johnson.

Amy Johnson was born in Hull. She was the first woman to fly solo from England to Australia. This was her green car

Because it was Sunday city centre streets were so quiet and it was very easy to park. 

Drypool Bridge and a traffic light:

We had more fun that expected. Our son loved the Streetlife museum, packed with old vehicles, machinery and quirky shops.
