We went twice to the museum of slavery. It was extremely informative and moving and we could not take everything in during our first visit. We did not have time to see the other sections of the maritime museum so will return.

I can't get inside the museum because I was late after visiting museum of Liverpool and ship cruise. But I hear about the museum that it had a lot of evidence of ancient ship dockyards.

very interesting museum. There is a lot to see. The Titanic area is very well done. The model ships in the area related to shipbuilding are so beautiful and I found this enthralling. I don't know of there is anywhere one could get more information on this. The Slavery Museum is heart breaking and gives graphic descriptions of the conditions... More

This was a really interesting museum with something for all ages, having had a father and father in law in the Royal Navy we both learned something new about life as it was then. There is also a good childrens section and various little games throughout to keep them happy.

We happened upon the museum whilst walking around Albert Dock. Very surprised upon entering that it was free (donations accepted). Everything was mapped out really well and spread over 5 floors. The Titanic floor was brilliant and some of the artifacts were great to see. The models of the ships were unbelievably accurate and some of the stories that you... More

I have gone here every time that I have gone to Liverpool and it is an interesting and fun way to spend a couple of hours while exploring Liverpool. The exhibits are very interesting and , obviously, due to the fact that Liverpool was the port of registry of the Titanic, there a number of exhibits on the ship and... More
