Hull's Maritime Museum is being transformed into a 21st century museum, revealing some of the original Grade II architecture. 

Here are some images showing the latest progress made by Simpson of York. 

Work is expected to be complete in the summer when a specialist company will start the fit out process, installing all the news displays, signage and technology. This is expected to take a year then the objects will return and be positioned in their new home.
