Good venue for a team meeting lunch provided ok, views across the river brilliant, great to see all the children with mums and dads plus grand parents visiting over the school holidays, a real nice buzz in a really modern venue, although I didn't get chance to view all exhibits will definitely be making a visit with my grand kids...

Such an interesting museum and well laid out. Maps to show you where the best things are and lifts for when you tire as it is Sooooooo big. We loved the Egyptian floor with videos of people explaining how their lives were in ancient Egypt. A must to do.

This is a modern building but cleverly displays the history of Liverpool, near to the waterfront and the three graces, well worth a visit you will be surprised

Excellent up to date museum which is free. Over several floors and have so many different areas to look at from trains and trams to the music. Especially loved the Karaoke booth on the top floor. Good vies from the windows and a good cup of tea in the cafe
