An ok museum but a bit samey if you're not that into boats. The customs bit at the end was informative and interesting with lots of hands on stuff for kids to play with.,

Visited here with my toddler on a Sunday morning. It was very interesting and there was plenty to see. My son loved looking at all the different models of the boats but there isn't an awful lot to keep very young children entertained and the pre-school area could do with some TLC. Would like to bring him again when he's... More

Free, and very good - I especially enjoyed the Titanic exhibit and was touched by the stories of kids shipped to the US or Australia from UK, which is told in an exhibition on the ground floor. Very educative. Has personal stories to make your experience even more memorable.

I went to Maritime Museum in Liverpool, due to having an interest in history, and it didn't disappoint. The staff was friendly & helpful. It's free to enter & lots to see, including information & items from Titanic, warships & galleries. I had a great afternoon, a must for anyone interested in history.

Best thing we saw whilst we were in Liverpool. There was so much to do and see, it was amazing!. We easily spent 3-4 hours walking around the museum.
