We visited The Merseyside Maritime Museum by complete accident on a short trip to London. As we landed, thoughts turned to what to do and a local pointed us in the direction of the museum. In the end we ended up spending a full day there to the point of being thrown out at the end because they were closing.... More

Interesting exhibits on Liverpool's maritime heritage, but quite difficult to navigate round. Especially enjoyed the exhibition on border controls and the lengths people go to, to smuggle in illicit goods. The exhibition on the slave trade would have benefited from a road-map of how to get round.

We enjoyed (if enjoyed is the right word) learning all about the Titanic and Lusitania disasters and the Liverpool Slave Trade. Another warehouse put to a superb new use

Had a really good day, interesting museum - will certainly be returning! We especially enjoyed the special demonstration about sniffer dogs, which included meeting Millie the sniffer dog! A great day out.

Having spent two days in the city we decided to visit a few museums around the docks. This one was very interesting. There was lots to do and see for all ages. Large amount of information on offer. The personal stories by the children who were sent to Australia were fascinating. Would definitely recommend. Perhaps better signage and more hands... More

We enjoyed the free entry opportunity ( donation appreciated). Great exhibition at the time on child migration. Shocking and moving. Wartime exhibition..Lusitania and Titanic. In the same building the Slavery museum...thought provoking.
