We wandered around this museum for a good couple of hours and still didn't see/do everything. Signage wasn't top notch - "Where do we start and which way round do we go?" was a frequent thought. There was a lot of information to be read and experienced - too much for one visit. The building is newish and of modern... More

So much to see only did one floor, keep the others for another time. So much information colourfully and accessibly laid out. The cafe was really great value for money and nice choice of dishes freshly cooked. Looking forward to return visit already! Don't know if there were locker facilities or buggy parking as didn't need them, I would be... More

Loved the whole ambiance of the place, the fact that is was free and the Guggenheim inspired staircase up the centre. Lots of things for the kids to touch and feel, lots of interesting facts and really eclectic collection that worked so well. This is a modern museum, and all the better for it. As someone who worked at another... More

I love this museum - modern, airy and interesting. It doesn't stick to many conventions, offering a lively atmosphere with lots going on. Doesn't shy away from difficult issues either, the documentation of local protest movements is brilliant and the temporary display about HIV on Merseyside is something that most would shy away from. Go visit - lots for you... More
