Museums in Hull have recorded one million visitors since becoming the UK's City of Culture
POSTED 01 Sep 2017 . BY Ben Coxon
Hull’s museums, including the Ferens Art Gallery, the Hull History Centre and the Arctic Corsair trawler have recorded more than one million visitors since January, the highest figure since records began in 1960.

According to the City Council, the busiest day for Hull’s museums was on 21 January where a total of 12,805 people visited the cultural attractions.

Hull was awarded the City of Culture in 2013 and has redeveloped a number of its cultural draws in the intermittent period, including a £5.2m (US$6.7m, €5.6m) renovation for the Ferens Art Gallery, which was selected to host this year's Turner Prize.

The figure, which shows the success that the title of City of Culture can bring, also included Wilberforce House, the Hull and East Riding Museum, Streetlife Museum of Transport, Spurn Lightship, Hull Maritime Museum, and the Hands on Museum.

Saying “We are delighted that such large numbers of people have visited our museums and art gallery during our year as the UK’s City of Culture," said Hull City councillor and portfolio holder for Leisure and Tourism, Terry Geraghty

"Reaching one million visitors in just eight months acknowledges the quality programme of exhibitions and events developed and delivered by our superb staff during 2017."

Additionally, Geraghty also revealed that the city was planning a number of new developments, aimed at continuing to attract more people to Hull in the future.

As part of these plans, it was announced in June that several of Hull’s maritime attractions would undergo £27.5m (US$35.6m, €29.8m) worth of renovations over the next seven years.
