Popped in while in Liverpool and really pleased we did. Some great exhibits and well laid out with a really modern interior. Loved the gay exhibition on while we visited, always good to see things that push the boundaries.

Great space to learn all about the history of the city. Has a basic cafe and shop - a little expensive though.

Interesting snapshots of Liverpool history. The fact that it's free entry means you can dip in and out, whilst doing other things either side.

Visited here and was pleasantly surprised how well laid out the museum was. The history of the docks and the large industries associated with the importing of rum, sugar, bananas and many other things was facinating.....and the location adjacent to the Albert dock was great.
