I can highly recommend the Liverpool Museum for adults and children. Plenty of nostalgia for the adults and hands on stuff for the kids. Stuff on the music scene that Liverpool is so proud off. Ships and docks stuff. Even an old carriage from the Liverpool Overhead Railway. We spent about three hours here but could have spent more. What's... More

Visited the Museum of Liverpool for the first time and for such an iconic waterfront building was pleasantly surprised that there is no admission charge.A fantastic interactive insight into this historic maritime city. The city's industrial, cultural and sporting history all form part of the exhibits. A fantastic way to spend several hours and become absobed in all things Liverpool.

A really nice little museum. A good mix of lots of different topics from the shipping and the local landmarks as well as the Beatles and other famous musicians and actors. And best of all.... It's free. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed my afternoon at the museum of Liverpool, I particularly enjoyed the exhibition of women and poppies and the football section. I felt the Beatles video exhibit could be improved; it missed an opportunity to convey their impact on music or describe the span of their career, but still worth a listen nonetheless. There was a good mix of... More

First class museum in area of museums: the Tate, maritime and slavery museums. Reminded me of Smithsonian in DC. And I mention that that they are all free admission?

My family and I visited this museum on Friday the 28th August 2015. We were very impressed with what they had there 2 shows about Sir Paul McCartney meeting John Lennon and the original stage where they met. Also a footy show about the Reds(Liverpool)and the Blues(Everton).

This is a great museum inside and out. I came here with a friend just for a quick visit but ended up staying for quite a while because it was so interesting and tells you almost everything about Liverpool.

Once inside the whole thing comes alive - and gives you a real perspective into the history of Liverpool and Liverpudlians and how they got to where they are today. Busy even on a nice day - free and seemingly appreciated even by the locals. The shop is well worth a visit too

The Museum of Liverpool is really worth a visit. It's a fantastic free attraction for all ages and really wish we had had more time to stay and take in everything. Loved the popular culture exhibits taking you through the history of Liverpool's most famous musicians, poets etc. The museum is both insightful and vibrant, with a good layout and... More
