A great museum to dip in and out of,here again this week with my 6year old,the top floor is our fave. Cafe on the ground floor is always a disappointment tho, service is generally disjointed and disengaged. 4 stars for the museum and two for the cafe.

Discovered things about Liverpool that I never knew. Interesting to understand what an important place Liverpool and the docks played in trade.

Great experience! Give yourself a couple hours to explore the museum and all its exhibits. The museum is full of history and definitely worth the time. The museum is also free and a very excellent way to spend the afternoon.

Such a great museum & all for free. The interactive displays will keep young & old busy. I didn't have enough time to see everything, there was just so many interesting displays. I particularly liked to display about the docks where you can press buttons to hear the words of the workers.

Just popped in for 45 minutes while waiting for the Mersey ferry. A great insight into live in Liverpool through the ages. Well worth spending an afternoon there

A really impressive new museum with space and light but, we thought, little structure and cohesion. Looking out of the windows was impressive as was the whole building but, to us, was all over the place with no overall theme to follow theme. Maybe it was just us feeling tired on a wet Sunday!

It is an truly impressive building but I was expecting a lot more once inside. The best use of the space is questionable for such a modern design. Whilst I accept that there is a Maritime Museum nearby I would have thought that more should have been made of the impact that the docks and the associated sea life has... More

A fantastic museum. Could have used hours here. This museum alone was a good enough reason to visit Liverpool.
