A Great range of museums that show the old Liverpool warts and all. A must see is the slavery museum that reminds us of how Britain became rich from cruelty and greed.

I'm not a big museum person, I usually find them quite boring, but loved this one. The top floor is the best, really interesting look at the sport and music in Liverpool. Make it a must see on a visit to liverpool, especially in the summer, as the waterfront is beautiful.

Visited the museum with my Husband on our latest visit and was so surprised at the sheer size of the place, it's massive.. We spent a good 3 hours in there but didn't feel like it.. It's got the entire history of Liverpool under 1 roof, in fact I like my museum but this will blow anyone away.. It's interactive... More

Fantastic museum with lots of interesting exhibits. Particularly enjoyed the exhibit on all the entertainers who came from Liverpool such as The Beatles, Ken Dodd and Cilla Black. Also enjoyed the sports exhibit and the railway exhibit with the rail car and steam engine. Would interest all age groups and it's free!!!

My first visit and what a fantastic place, full of amazing facts and great exhibits. Lots of humour throughout, my favourite was the man in the privvy telling everyone to go away as he farts! Brilliant! You need a good 4-5 hours to do it justice.
