Why Carnegie?

The Carnegie Heritage Centre is a resource that can be accessed by people with an interest in both Local and Family history. The centre has an amazing wealth of data about Hull's history and people's memories of it.

The enthusiastic volunteers spend hours cataloguing old and new data and are always on hand to help visitors with their queries. 

People are welcome to come in and look at the books, maps, box files etc. whether it be for individual study, family history research or just curiosity.

Talks & Exhibitions

A wide ranging scope of topics are covered in our talks schedule, there really is something for everyone here. Given by regular attendees at the Centre who have painstakingly researched their chosen subject and well known local historians, they are informative and usually highly entertaining as well.

What do we do?

As well as protecting and preserving the former library as a building of architectural and historical significance, we provide a resource that can be put to good use by virtue of this preservation.

As well as providing a home for the activities of the Heritage Centre, and being run entirely by volunteers, we also house a book binding business and a base of operations for several societies and regular functions.

Family & Local History

The Centre runs courses in both family and local history. The family history course lasts five weeks, with a two hour session per week. We hold a comprehensive range of resources useful to anyone wanting to learn more about local history, from books and maps to street directories and postcards – and more besides.

The Local History course is run by Adult Education, 10 weeks during term time.
