The museum is full of artifacts explaining the history of Liverpool and it's close association with the sea. I especially enjoyed the Titanic, Lusitania and Carpathia sections.

Its the first time we have visited the museum without our children who have all grown up now. So we could take it in our own time without trying to keep them interested. It was a totally different experience with time to read and explore in our own time. We did the Liverpool wet dock visit which has to be... More

I had been to this museum years ago and it had changed a lot in that time, it was like it was new to me. Plenty to see and learn, with different floors covering different areas. The titanic section was really interesting and I was really pleased to see a section dedicated to gay men who where in the navy,... More

An excellent FREE attraction. The museum is well laid out and expertly arranged. I could have spent the whole afternoon in the Titanic exhibition. There is so much to see and it is in a wonderful location close to many cafés etc - an amazing experience!

I really liked this museum, so many interesting facts about the ships, including titanic and others similar. There was also history about war and the life of people in the ships. Great place to go.

Admittedly we only visited because it was raining, but actually enjoyed our visit to this free museum. There is so much info here all crammed into one large museum, that if I had one negative comment it is that at times it was difficult to navigate your way around the exhibits, despite signage of what was on show in each...

Such an interesting place, I think five floors in all with the restaurant being the top one. The Titanic exhibition was great with lots of information and photographs, also the end of slavery was enlightening, well worth a visit and its all free.

My wife and I lost ourselves in here for over 3 hours.... fantastic Titanic exhibition, magnificent models of ships and information we never knew about Liverpool. Too much to see in one day for sure.... £6 to park the car outside the door for 4 hours, cant be bad these days, free entry.... we'll be back for sure

Its free for a start and a great place for a rainy Liverpool day lots to see and a varied history of maritime in Liverpool and interesting. Enjoyed (not the right word as such) the Slavery Museum on the top floor - very thought provoking and the history - an important reminder of the atrocities England was a forerunner in... More
