We only had a morning to visit Albert Dock in Liverpool, so after spending nearly four hours in The Beatles Story, we only had a short time left to visit the Museum of Liverpool. What a marvellous museum it turned out to be. I can only say that I will return as soon as possible to spend a lot longer... More

Personally I thought the museum was a bit boring. There's plenty of other decent museums in Liverpool and this isn't one of the better ones. In a lovely location and the building itself is nice, though.

Not a "Must Visit" museum! Some very cheesey exhibits such as the Fashion Thru the Ages.....they were on Barbie Dolls! Not a lot of local interesting stuff and a little small. But it was free and took up an hour on a rainy afternoon.

It's a huge modern box and after Tate modern, you enter in trepidation of strange exhibits. Then after starting on the top floor, you are amazed and spend hours in the museum. From Beatles to Liverpool Dock Railway, it's all there with fantastic videos/performances en route. It would take a week and then some to read and see everything. presentation... More

Located on the bank of the river Mersey, one the pier head the museum tells the history of the city of Liverpool. Including the history of the city, small section about the Beatles and a interesting carriage from the demolished over head railway. Also the view from the giant window across the Pier Head is stunning

Lots of different themes about life in Liverpool. Very interesting to find out about the trade in the past and the thriving sports and music scenes in the city. Plenty of hands on experiences and free! Lockers are £1 returnable deposit and are varied in size. Fab exhibits including a painting of the cityscape done through stencilling.
