Wow! What an experience. The village is beautiful, the museum amazingly informative. You find out so much that you were unaware of, what an inspiring visit. My children (12 & 11) loved it and were really interested in everything they saw. Thank god for gift aid as now I can visit as often as I want in the next 12... More

It is like stepping back in time to walk around the beautifully quirky village of Port Sunlight and to see the Museum and it's grounds. Such a quintessentially British place with real roots with local people and the local area - a fabulous journey back in time to understand what life was like over 100 years ago. The museum is...

The museum was overpriced but nice enough and a real insight into what Port Sunlight is all about. Port Sunlight itself is well worth a meander. It was totally unexpected and charming.

Went this weekend. It is most interesting to anyone interested in 19th century art and culture indeed any person over about 60 will be familiar with many of the paintings. Go there see the collection, go to the good cafe, and the interesting shop. It is at present closed in a few rooms due to refurbishment but shortly to be... More

Visit to the museum in Port Sunlight, was a lovely experience and a delight. Very informative and gave a wonderful accounnt of the lives of those who lived and worked there. Would be a great opportunity for children to learn about the history of this amazing place. Please visit you will not be disappointed!

The large site - much bigger than I expected - comprises a museum, art gallery, church, pub and various statues and attractions, as well as a large number of houses that reflect the architectural styles of the late...
