As with the Manchester ship canal, the weather was ok,slight drizzle,but we do live in England,Port Sunlight is well worth a look,Excellent buildings,nice tea room,wine and so if required,opposite station,what more can you need.Liverpool has come a long way and if possible,better all the time,very good.The Pump House serves good food. Albert Dock.

Took some friends visiting from abroad to the museum. No other languages available and most of the museum consists of boards on the walls giving the history of Port Sunlight in English. Very little interactive material - felt it was expensive for what was on offer. Disappointing when the rest of Port Sunlight and the gallery are so interesting.

Port Sunlight - quite wonderful and worthy of a full day visit, an easy 15 mins train journey from Liverpool to Bebington, a leisurely walk along Greendale Road as far as the factory building and then a meander back towards Bebington Station through the beautiful village via the church, the museum, the Lady Lever Art Gallery, stopping for lunch and...

Visited the Port Sunlight museum and village where the Sunlight Soap factory was built with numerous residential homes for their employees and families. We really had mixed feelings as we enjoyed walking around the village seeing the difference in the housing by the architects employed to design and build them. In addition to a School, local hospital, dining hall, other... More

This is my favourate museum ever. I mean I get so carried away and interested at all museums...but this one has a touch of uniqueness about it., and I cannot explain it because you have to go there to understand. Where it is situated is so beautifull and to think that those amazing houses were built for the workers is... More

Very interesting museum, useful in order to put Port Sunlight into historical context. Reasonable admission fee plus concessions, £3.95 for adults which I believe is valid for a year but suggest you check that. The 20 minute film is excellent and sets the scene. Worth a visit before you walk around the village. Nice café too serving simple straightforward food,... More

Cost £3.95 for an adult. The introductory film was good and very informative. I felt the rest really didn't warrant the cost.

A museum should hold your attention for at least half an hour. An expensive entrance fee was just not worth the experience after a couple rooms of wall photos. Across the road the Lady Lever Gallery is a joy to behold, go there instead, it is well worth a visit but leave the museum to the future, a very distant... More
