The Streetlife Museum of Transport is a transport museum located in Kingston upon Hull, England. The roots of the collection date back to the early 20th century, however the purpose-built museum the collection is housed in was opened in 1989 by the then Hull East MP, John Prescott. Core areas of the collection include Veteran cars, horse-drawn carriages and objects relating to local public transport.

Great museum, whenever I am in Hull with family or friends I like to bring them here as is a nice way to pass couple of hours or so and take a step back into the past. Wonderful that this attraction is also free.
If you have ever been to the railway museum in York, you will very much love the Streetlife museum. It has everything from all things transport, bikes and old motor cars. Great to bring the young too.
Indoor museum that is free. It has examples of old tram, cars, carriages, few shops, etc with a little quiz for kids to do on the way around. Also a nice garden out back. Great for kids under 10 & over 45!
Great museum which is free, and they all run a toddler group (also free) on a Monday. Lovely group, very friendly lady who runs it. It included a story, a craft, quality toys, drink & biscuit. We had a picnic outside in the grounds, plenty of sheltered tables.
Great step back in time. Suitable for all ages. Lifts available for disabled visitors. A group of school children were being showed around. Some of the exhibits with manakins were a bit too real and if you looked closely there was a chance they moved! Free admission as well. Takes about an hour to see round.
Excellent small museum, fantastic effort to build realistic scenes with good interpretation. Free but I felt I had to put in a donation it was so lovely. Pity the trawler was closed off for winter, can understand why.
Great day out with plenty to see. They have a great range of vehicles and trams and their reproduction of vintage shops is fantastic. They also have a wonderful collection of antique cycles, but conventional and not! All in all, very engaging and well worth a visit.
A free museum in the museum Quarter. Out if the three here, this was my favourite. It was like walking back in time, the exhibits are really well done, and you can spend hours exploring here. On a side note bring some 20p coins with you- you can play some of the old arcade/fair ground games! The museum itself is very interactive, and there's a lot to do! Thoughrely enjoyed it!
We went here on Saturday 6 April with out Grand Children... wow! This was a great place, never knew it was here. It was a great museum full of wonderful things. The children made paintings and craft things. There were pizzas that they could make and cooking demonstration. They went the dig and learned about all the medieval site and relics of Hull. We would recommend this place to anybody. Everything is shown in a fantastically professional way and the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. We will be returning very soon to see all the bits we missed.
Brilliant, informative little museum. loads of things to see, loads of things that the kids could interact with. all for a donation (no entry fee), that we were more than happy to give. A lovely way to spend a good couple of hours.
Awesome place and free entry. It's in the museum quarter too so there are a few museum's all within walking distance of each other
It was a great visit, and happy to provide a donation or two. Spent over an hour and half at the Transport Museum section. Only left because I needed a cuppa. Highly recommended. Helpful staff, and a great place to visit.
I absolutely loved the streetlife museum. I popped in on a Saturday afternoon on my while out on my motorbike. The exhibits were good, with excellent detail. I'd recommend it to anyone.
I have visited this museum regularly since i was a little girl myself. I now take my own children they love it, we go to all the special events there like the Victorian Christmas. When there they especially like the vintage buses you can board and the carriage ride. Recently went to the new toddler group that has started there 'Transport tots' on Monday mornings, It was really nice a welcoming group and refreshments available will be back soon.
