Hull Museums and Ferens Art Gallery to change Sunday opening hours - 25/06/18
Hull Museums, including the award-winning Ferens Art Gallery, are to extend their opening hours on Sundays.

The move comes as part of an opening hours rethink designed to better reflect visitor demand.

The Ferens and the city’s museums will open at 11am on Sundays from 1 July to allow families and out-of-town visitors more time to visit. It follows a successful trial in 2017.

As part of the move, opening hours will be reduced slightly across the venues towards the end of the day – when visitor numbers are at their lowest – to stay within cost-efficient budgets.

The Ferens Art Gallery, Hull Maritime Museum, Wilberforce House Museum, Streetlife Museum and The Hull and East Riding Museum will open from 10am to 4.30pm from Monday to Saturday and 11am to 4pm on Sundays, with last admission time 30 minutes prior to closing. The new opening hours will come into effect on Sunday 1 July.

Councillor Dave Craker, Hull City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Tourism, said: “I am delighted that we are able to satisfy customer demand by opening on a Sunday morning. I would like to pay tribute to the flexibility and commitment of Museums’ staff in making this possible.”
