very evocative of Liverpool's past. Loved the short film show with Beatles' songs and the transport section. Harrowing film of small boy killing himself cleaning out flues on a ship.May those days never return!

Situated right by the Mersey - be prepared to spend a few hours wandering round discovering all about the history of Liverpool in it's heyday. Free entry

I was surprised by the size and scope of this museum. Spread over five floors it starts with aquariums on the first floor, through ancient Rome, ancient Egypt, dynosaurs and natural history, culminating with a science museum and planetarium on the top floor. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. Best of all - it's free. Highly recommended !!!

What a wonderful museum with so many diferent themes and fantastic artefacts. I have visited 3 times and still haven't managed to see all. It really shows the visitor Livrpool's past. Rather than me tell you go and find out for yourself.

You could easily spend best part of a day here. Interesting, educational and informative with a good café and facilities. Everywhere is very clean and we thought gift shop was quite inexpensive. Don't forget to see the 'superlambananas' outside.

The free museum tells a lot about the city and cares for families as well. you can learn a lot about Liverpool although sometimes the rooms seem to be overcrowded with info and artifacts. Great view on Mersey from the top floor.

We took our 91year old Mum, who is not very mobile, so we used a wheelchair. Access and going around with the wheelchair was a good experience. The Overhead Railway Carriages were a real winner with our Mum, it took her right back to her childhood when she used to meet her Grandfather who worked on the Docks as a... More
