We recently went to Southport and one of our excursions was to Port Sunlight. What a very interesting visit. There was so much to see in the museum and the art gallery. We watched a very interesting film about Unilever and the soaps.

Port Sunlight is a great place to visit and experience a piece of our industrial heritage. The mueseum gives a great overview of the place it's successes & failings over time. There is a coffee shop there which makes for a nice rest break

Had to travel to Wirral to pick something up, whilst up that way decided to see the village etc. 3.95 an adult. Good information and an interesting 20 min film of the history. Takes about an hour or so. Still very good and I think worthwhile.

The museum, though small, was such an informative place. The 20 minute film which detailed the development of the 'village' went to show how forward thinking Lord Leverhulme actually was when he started building this village for his employees. Choice between Liverpool slum or Port Sunlight's openess - no contest. The amount of information available was fantastic - the heritage... More

Enjoyed the short film and all the information about this bit of social history. Enjoyed a stroll around the village itself and all the differing styles of architecture, beautiful setting and well preserved.

Port Sunlight Museum is a family-friendly place to visit, and very popular with school visits too. It's full of interesting exhibits, and is well worth popping in for a few hours if you're ever on the Wirral. Decent café, too!

We visited the museum on a quiet weekday afternoon, it was good value for money and a lovely place to while away a couple of hours. The museum is full of interesting information and artefacts and the 20 minute film is worthwhile watching. We bought the small guide map of the village and had a pleasant walk around to get... More
