Welcome to the Hull History Centre

Hull History Centre temporary closure

During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it is important to balance heating with ventilation in public spaces to minimise the risk of transmission. Unfortunately, because of the increased ventilation, the History Centre public spaces are currently not warm enough for visitors. Work is being undertaken to try and resolve this, but it is challenging given the building and its systems were never envisaged to operate in such challenging circumstances. Our engineers are continuing to try to find the right solution.

We have therefore taken the decision to temporarily close the History Centre to the public. Further information regarding reopening will be posted here.

Staff will continue to answer enquiries sent to but please bear with us as we may take longer than usual to respond.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
