The museum is run by a trust and it charges about £3.50 admission to help run it. It is small but the 20 minute film detailing the history was fascinating. The room with the exhibits was also interesting but if you had watched the film it repeated a lot of information. The Beatles played their first gig as the Fab... More

This museum is opposite the Lady Lever Gallery and is very much the poor relation (in my opinion). It is much smaller and charges an entrance fee whereas the gallery is free; perhaps we should have come here first! It tells the story of Port Sunlight mostly in story boards.

Visited Port Sunlight while on a trip to the Wirral Peninsula. The village is a lovely place. There was a calm about the place. The gardens/flowers looked wonderful. We ventured into the museum - well worth a visit. All the information you need with interactive options for the younger folks. There were some amazing paintings in the art gallery. Called... More

The museum is not large but contains a lot of information and I would certainly recommend a visit. The tea room is good too, lovely cakes!!! Combine this with the village itself and the Lady Lever art gallery for a full day out.

We decided to visit here before we went to the gallery. It was a very useful and well presented museum with lots of information about the setting up of Port Sunlight, the construction of the village, the workers and about The Lever family too. It set the scene for the rest of the day- we went on to visit the... More

My trip was not just to the museum but to the village of Port Sunlight on a coach trip for the day. We had been given a small talk about the village during the journey and had a guided tour whilst we were there. What a truly amazing place! It is so peaceful and calm and beautifully kept. The museum... More

It was great to see how forward thinking Mr. Lever was. The Museum offers an audio presentation which explains his thinking when he decided to provide homes and education for his workers. There is also an amazing Art Gallery which he built, filled with beautiful works of art, and donated to the village. The cafeteria in the museum was very... More

We loved port sunlight what an amazing place, its complete village built to house the workers and offer a life very much a cut above the general way people lived at that time, its beautifully preserved and the house themselves are all little historical architectural exhibits, the museum which houses lady levers personal collections it worthy of any museum status...

I don't know why I have never visited this idyllic village before. The museum was good value with a small but well laid out area explaining the history of Port Sunlight. The film show was excellent at telling the story of one of this country's great philanthropists. The £4.50 cost is for a one year ticket. Tea in the cafe... More
