Open Bridges made history when for the first, and only time, all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on the autumn equinox, 22nd September 2017.

Newsflash! Due to popular demand the Open Bridges exhibition at Hull Maritime Museum has been extended and will be on display, together with the films until the end of 2019.

Open Bridges: A River Full of Stories film and exhibition opens in Hull Maritime Museum

The Open Bridges: A River Full of Stories film and exhibition is opening at Hull Maritime Museum on Saturday 6th July 2019 until the end of the year. The films will be on continuous loop throughout the free exhibition, open Monday – Saturday, 10am – 4.30pm, and Sunday, 11am – 4pm.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our ‘Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories’ project. We are preparing the presentation book for Hull and East Yorkshire libraries and museums and River Full of Stories film for later this year.
