Entry to the museum is free, but voluntary donations are accepted. The museum is very clean, modern and very nicely laid out. There are lifts to the upper levels as well as a wonderful staircase. There are plenty of toilet and baby changing facilities all spotlessly clean. There are so many exhibits you will need at least a couple of... More

Excellent location on the Waterside in front of "The Three Graces". Details the rise and fall and rise again of Liverpool. Splendid presentation of the Exhibits on 3 Floors. Something for all to enjoy. We had visited with Family from Australia and like us very impressed with the depth and quality. Friendly Staff, well worth a Visit.

You will get more out of this museum if you understand the Liverpuddlian culture, but if you are into the 60'S music or football a visit is a must.

The top floor focuses on the musical heritage of Liverpool with lots of audio and interactive items. An audio visual Beatles history runs every 15 mins with the stage that Lennon and McCartney first... More

Very good museum. Most attractions on 2nd floor, 1st floor could be used more. Could have more interactive for toddlers, as the website video shows.

It has a pre history time line for the city. Section on WW1 was so emotive and informative. Contemparary music, was not all the beatles ( who had no loyalty to the city) included reference... More

Liverpool's chequered history is thoroughly and interestingly covered in this relatively new addition to the city's museums. It fills a niche next to the Maritime museum and brings things up to date with exhibits on Liverpool's (somewhat disgraceful) glory days as the second city of empire, its role in the Battle of the Atlantic, industrial and economic decline, the sixties...

Loved going straight to the top then made our way down through excellent and informative exhibits. Particularly enjoyed the section on the Rainforest. Excellent visit and especially considering that it is all free.
