Loved this museum and the story and history of Liverpool that it told. Entertaining interactive displays on the top floor translating Scouse and explaining the evolution of the dialect.

Museum depicting Liverpools past, from the ice age to the modern day. The history of the Liverpool Overhead Railway, sadly lost, is fascinating. Well worth a visit.
