We visited the Port Sunlight Museum by bicycle. We found the museum is interesting with the history of the town and how people lived in the old days. The information displayed is easy to read:) Bathrooms are very clean.

The art gallery is wonderful, the cafe is nice and the whole area is very interesting indeed to see. Well worth a half day visit and so much of it is free.

One of my favourite Museums. I never tire of coming to see all the wonderful exhibits.Obviously Victoria & Albert, London is far greater in size but I enjoy this just as much.

I took a group to Port Sunlight in May 2015. We had time in the Museum and the Art gallery and then had a coach tour round the village with a guide. This is the best way to see Port Sunlight and hear all about it's history. The guide was excellent. She made the place come to life and we... More

Thank you Sue B for your very kind comments. We are pleased you and your group enjoyed Port Sunlight Museum and the Guided village tour. The Lady Lever Art Gallery, across the way from the museum, is also a superb place to visit when in Port Sunlight. We hope you will visit again soon. More

The Village Tour guide was interesting and informative, the museum well laid out, the Lady Lever Art Gallery well worth a visit, all topped off with a delicious afternoon tea in the museum tea room, which was excellent value for money with staff that couldn't have been more helpful to...

We had a U3A group visit to Port Sunlight, what a lovely place to visit, a beautiful garden centre, amazing monuments and lovely gardens. We had a coach tour of the village which was very informative takes about an hour. There is a shop, tea rooms and a museum which costs £3 to visit. Also the art gallery free entry... More
