The way the museum is set out and all the colourful displays makes it very interesting and one that even young children would find enjoyable.My friend even found a picture of her grandfather who was awarded a medal In WW1 .I expect that many people with Liverpool roots find information relating to their own family history.A personal favourite item situated...

I went on a Sunday afternoon, great to see the museum being enjoyed by so many. I didn't explore all the floors as I found all the different press and listen videos at once made it hard to take in any information, will return on a quiet day

Located on the docks not far from the Liverbird building The artefacts were nicely displayed , but there was just too much space between the items and not enough items on display. If this is the new way of showing a museum it sadly fails to impress me. Visited one month after it reopened -after being closed for 6 years.

This museum really does have something for everyone! Whether your interests are more contemporary eg music, fashion, football; or if you prefer more traditional museum exhibits, you will find it all here. As an extra bonus there is no entrance charge, and the actual building itself is stunning. The only negative I can think of is that due to it's... More

Although I only saw some of it I found it good and will definitely return to see the rest of it.It's another place to revile in nostalgia,with cases of rooms laid out from the 60's,Beatles memorabilia + much more. A good place to spend time on a wet day.There is a lift for those who can not manage stairs.
