I enjoyed the coverage of all strands of Liverpool history, particularly the aspects of Liverpool in war and the inclusion of women and black persons in that category. Did not have a lot of time there but would return. Was not impressed with the food in cafeteria.

WELL worth a visit, give... More

I was amazed at how good this museum is. The ground floor dock exhibition and the top floor music, sport and writing exhibitions are truly outstanding. A credit to Liverpool.

this museum is not a dead museum but very much alive. It changes its theme regularly and there are areas even after many visits look new to you. Highly recommended.
