This was our first visit to the Maritime Museum in Liverpool which is part of the collection of attractions at the Albert Dock. The exhibits at the museum, particularly the wartime theme and the Titanic exhibition, would be well worth paying for but, as entry is free it is simply wonderful. Parents of younger kids should ensure they take part... More

Superb exhibits but NO Soap in either the Ladies or Gents toilets on the ground floor. I don't mean empty dispensers as there were none, I mean no soap of any kind!! AWFUL!

Found it underwhelming as a destination. Probably a good stop if you like ships and live in Liverpool.

We loved the exhibitions about migration from Liverpool but that took up half a floor, whereas the TWO Titanic exhibitions too much more space. In fact we learnt more about the maritime and shipbuilding history of Liverpool from the Liverpool Museum rather than this museum. But it was all presented beautifully and looks like a well run and popular museum... More

This museum is deceiving. It also includes the slavery museum upstairs (goes to 3 floors). There are some magnificent exhibitions of the titantic and other ships. Some models of them too. There is cinema footage and world war 1 and 2 exhibitions, and although I am not that interested in ships myself, did find this worth visiting. It gave a... More

Came to Liverpool with husband and kids during Easter holiday and particularly wanted to come to the slavery exhibition in this museum. I was pleasantly surprised by how well laid out and uncrowded the museum is. I also found the history of the Liverpool shipping and cruise liner industries very interesting. The slavery exhibition was really interesting and is focussed... More
