I've been to a few maritime museums now and they're all pretty samey, as was this one until we came to The Titanic exhibition. This exhibition alone made the museum so much more interesting for me.

A very interesting museum in a fabulous location. A great place to while away some time, learn about our maritime heritage or even just escape from the rain for a while!

Some bits were good, but on the whole it lacked interactive displays and involved a lot of reading, not that interesting for younger visitors. Little ones are catered for with the treasure hunt, the older kids struggled

This was excellent, covered a lot of history and very interactive. I even felt as though the floors were moving on the Atlantic WWII floor, but my husband tells me it was all in my imagination. Cannot wait to go back when they finish the Lost Empress exhibition.

We loved it. It brought liverpools past to life. The building was amazing and had been carefully adapted to house the museum. The ships that docked there , the merchants who built liverpool up , the Titanic exabition and the terrible slave trade. All these things and so much more.
