This very small museum would be more acceptable if it were free because it won't take the average adult more than ten minutes to go round it, plus another twelve for the more interesting historical video about the development of Port Sunlight. The displays are mostly aimed at children, probably of primary school age, and you'll soon tire of pushing... More

My wife and I took an afternoon guided walking tour (£5.50 each for wrinklies) which was great value for money as that included entrance to the Museum. Our volunteer guide was John Spilletts who, now retired, was born and bred in the village. John's deep, personal local knowledge, together with his gentle and pleasant manner made our tour trully delightful... More

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.
