Very nice museum? A little dark, really the ambiance of a boat. There are various models and maritime history including about the titanic. At the top there was an interesting exhibit about important Africans and people of African descent.

good place to peruse when the weather is not so good. Lovely place on the top floor to spend a while to relax and enjoy a drink or something to eat with great views over the Albert Dock

Well worth spending time here visiting all the floors and exhibits. A unique experience showing Liverpool is not just about the Beatles. Shipping was for many years bound up in Liverpool life making this a great way of getting to know the history.

To go here and see genuine items from the White Star Line, and their most famous ship the Titanic, is so worth a trip to Liverpool no matter where in the world you are coming from. Liverpool was the home port to all White Star Line ships, and of course their head office is also in James St Liverpool, called... More

Some interesting stuff - particularly about the Atlantic convoys of WW2. The museum of slavery was less interesting to me.

A visit to the Albert Docks is a must, my workmate encouraged me before the trip to England. Boy was he right! The Museum is worth passing through, with Marine stories (Titatnic main feature), War stories, and Slavery - both educational and eye opening. Oh, and the restaurant on the fourth floor! :)

A trip underground to see the first wet dock led by Yaz and Danny .The importance of this dock put liverpool on the world map . These guys knew their history , fascinating to hear , and were incredibly enthusiastic . Not well advertised but a must . Ask at museum reception .
