We only planned for half a day but ended up spending the better part of two days there and still there is more to see! Best cup of tea in the area in the cafe. The Lusitania and Titanic exhibition in particular were particularily good.

Do not be put of by the 'maritime' aspect. The museum is excellent - the Lisutania exhibition alone is worth making a visit. The exhibition really brings home the harsh realities of war and shows just how brutal war at sea can be when over a 1,000 innocent lives can be lost due to war. A lovely building with many... More

Out of all the museums that you could pick from in Liverpool I found this one quite boring, maybe it's just not my cup of tea but I thought that I would share my view as if you only have a day to look around then there's plenty of others to look at near by that are more interesting.

Great free museum with plenty to see! We used the lift to visit the Slavery and Titanic exhibitions. Lots more to see but our feet were killing us from all the walking we'd been doing. Would go again to see the bits we missed.

And extremely interesting museum with many exhibits. The building itself is stunning down on the Albert Dock. The whole thing really put you in the time and place it represents. A must visit in Liverpool.
