On Wednesday I spent an afternoon at Hull Heritage Learning finding out more about their proposed Hull Curriculum. They have put together a set of resources on 20 Hull histories ready for Hulls year as the city of culture. Some wonderfully enthusiastic people leading the way.
The day was hosted in the cities museum quarter with a marque set up in the Mandela gardens. While only a small walled garden they are looking beautiful at this time of year. For those who haven’t ever been it’s a lovely secluded area in the old historic part of the city. You have the museum for William Wilberforce (top rate slave abolisher), the street-life museum (many old vehicles for the young uns to rampage on) and the history museum (giant woolly mammoth and super Roman Mosaics). Best of all it’s all free and I think we have a better collection than the York museum which charges a small fortune for a family day out.
We still have one of the Phillip Larkin toads on display.
A lovely collection of roses.
The pond is full of mighty beasts in the depths.
Gandhi adds an element of calm to the garden.
Two of the residents at the museum.
A few of the vehicles on offer in the streetlife museum.
Some more pollen beetles.
On the way home I tracked down another moth for Amy.
