Work to install a new access ramp and steps is nearing completion.
Thanks to funding from DCMS Wolfson Foundation access to the main entrance of the Hull Maritime Museum is being improved. The work has been carried out as part of the continued improvements for the city centre.
When the museum re-opens to the public, they will provide all visitors with the same friendly welcome, providing full access to the museum and its internationally renowned collections, improving the experience for everyone.
As part of the work historic metalwork specialists - Lost Art, who restored the Pearson Park entrance gateway and removed the gates at the museum, noticed a unique feature of the hinges to the side gate.
Mik O’Connell, Project Manager, said: “While Victorian metalwork might not excite everyone, for those who specialise in this world the design of the Hull Maritime Museum gates is very unusual and ingenious design. The joy of heritage projects is that you are always coming across these little surprises.”
