Well done Liverpool for offering free museums with such a great variety of things to see. Spent much longer than expected here with three children under 8. Easy access, in an area with many more things to do and really friendly staff. O, and great free lockers so you don't have to carry anything around during your visit. Very much... More

Make sure you allow plenty of time to visit this museum. This museum is not what you would expect very modern and up to date, the displays and themes have something that most people can relate to.

The museum is a decent overview of Liverpool's past particularly the material on its development as a trading centre. The best exhibits for me were the musical/cultural items on the second floor.

We were impressed with the whole content, it's free entry, you can use a locker for free to store your bags, toilets on every floor,... More

Really great place to go for a day out. Thoroughly enjoyed learning so much about the history of Liverpool that I want to go again! Fantastic location and great views of the docks, etc. Loved that it was free entry, family friendly and that everywhere is well maintained and that it seems so modern! Strongly recommended as a 'must-see' if... More
