Free to enter with a good and varied history of Liverpool, we didn't allow enough time so only managed the first floor.

Have to say I really enjoyed my visit to this museum. It is a brilliant attraction and staff here are just excellent. You could spend hours here and admission is free. Well worth a visit. If I return to Liverpool I will visit again.

A really enjoyable visit to this museum near the Liver Building. A wonderful variety of things to look at including a Beatles Show and a Football Show; a very interesting section about the Liverpool Overhead Railway and many other interesting areas. We spent some time there and still didn't see everything.

We spent a few hours here enjoying the variety of exhibitions and displays. I enjoyed the media section and the short film about The Beatles. It was interesting to learn more about the lives of the dock workers and dwellers. The interactive story screens were great for engaging the children. Will definitely visit again. Worth a visit if you are... More

Me and my family were looking around the docks and trying to find something to do on a rainy day. We were advised by a gentleman on the street to visit the museum of Liverpool. We headed over to find it was free entry to anyone all day everyday with no time limit. After looking around the bottom floor we... More
