Just Ok.. must say the Maritime museum was more interesting to be honest. I was a bit disappointed with this one, but with entry, it is worth a look. Food in the cafe was a little pricy and the service was hectic and slow, but all the profits go to the museum so worth eating there.

The building is pretty. Only visit if you are interested in the city history and the docks. Lots about famous people from Liverpool so despite the Beatles, if you are not British, you wouldn't know most of them.

These museums on the Albert Dock area of Liverpool are well worth visiting! Highly recommended for all visitors ... locals and adventurers. Take a couple of days and do them at your leisure .. there is so much to see and experience! Don't forget the Lady Leverhulme art gallery at Port Sunlight.

This new museum is a great achievement... lots of activities for children, and full of state-of-the-art exhibits, telling the story of this city with it's amazing heart. From the Grand National, Beatles, cultural mix of peoples from around the world, stories of the great and good of merseyside, to sitting in one of the original coaches from the overhead railway...

Very good for transport. They have the first Ford Anglia to roll off the production line at Halewood and the last surviving Motorcoach from the Overhead Railway. (What a fantastic tourist attraction that would have been today). The Lion steam engine which was used in the film The Titfield Thunderbolt is also on display. Allow 2 hours here
