Came here at the weekend with my mum, Sister and niece. Lots of interesting things to look at and information to read. Spent an hour here, but could have stayed longer. All the exhibits are free which is a bonus!

It's got some very interesting things, for example the history of the overhead railway is very good. But most of the museum is already looking a bit tired, some of the interactive displays don't work and strangely some areas smell! But the kids interactive section is good for babies up to pre schoolers, although it is quite small. The staff... More

Ok. Not as good as I thought. Interesting on the history of the docks. Not clear signage to the various exhibits. Couldn't find the Beatles or LFC. Good panorama viewing window from the 3rd floor. Has lifts.

An excellent and immensely moving experience. Extremely well presented I was totally engrossed in the display of Liverpool life covering music culture and sport. I would strongly recommend this museum!!

We were greeted immediately on arriving and suggested which bits to go to first. Jaw dropping array of exhibits - sport, culture, Beatles, famous Liverpudlians. There are models, exhibits, music, interaction, even a karaoke booth! We didn't have time to go round it all but will definitely fix that on the next visit. Great for adults (nostalgia) and kids (fun).

This museum is full of lots of really interesting exhibits about Liverpool, with lots to interest children and many interactive items. My only complaint is that too many of the cabinets had some or all of the light bulbs not working. I know we all have to cut back but it is a shame to have great exhibits on display... More

Wow what a collection this place has! From early man, Vikings, football and music it has it all. We particularly enjoyed the overhead railway and info on the wars. The range of Beatles memorabilia was amazing! Some real gems ( better than the Beatles Story in my opinion) my two girls loved the singing booth! All in all a great... More

Spent an enjoyable hour and a half here, but easily could have been longer. It's free which is an added plus and located near the convention centre and the renovated dock area where there are so many other things to also see. The exhibits cover everything from pre history to the present day and for the most part are well... More
