If you are thinking of visiting the Maritime Museum, allow a full day for your visit. There is so much to see and to experience. Whether you are young or old it will be a day to remember. Also, it's free.

One of many museums in Liverpool this is situated in the Albert Dock, if you like anything maritime you will love this place. Take a visit for a beer or glass of wine to the Pumphouse Pub, opposite.

Took our 9 year old niece to the museum because it was a rainy day and it was free to get in. She loved it. The Titanic exhibition inspired her to carry out a school project on the history of the Titanic she also used the the ' Liverpool Giants story ' as part of her project. A great day... More

Another hidden gem on the doorstep here in the north west that yet again showcases you don't have to travel to London for a worthwhile museum experience. Visited the site with a colleague to fill a gap between meetings originally and was that impressed came back with friends on a more social visit. Titanic exhibit very thorough and a good... More

This is one of the best attractions on Merseyside. It always has something interesting and rings the changes so a return visit is never wasted. The old dock tour is recommended but this has to be booked. Like the museum it is free.

A great place to explore the past ,whether you are interested in hand on activities or wandering, The Slave trade and customs activities are brilliant and offer a challenge to the young and old. We spent hours in there and so much to see we had to split up and go for our interests. Not far then from the Fery... More

This is one of the jewels in the crown of Merseyside Museums. there are always lots of interactive activities for children and families. The slavery exhibition is heart-rending, and the titanic and Battle of the Atlantic exhibitions are powerful. Leave at least 90 minutes to look around - more if you can spare it. Don't forget the restaurant, top floor... More
