“Fabulous - fascinating for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Again we have visited the Museum of Liverpool - this time with a small tribe of relatives from ages 6yrs upto 67yrs - fascinating displays for all - great interactive exhibits everywhere and lots of places to stop and take the weight off your feet.
It is free to enter - but please be fair and remember to make a donation (whatever you can) so that this marvellous museum continues to go from strength to strength. There are free lockers for all your extra bags and coats (£1deposit). There are more toilets on every floor too (therre's always a queue at the ones by the lockers).
I have been to this museum approx 8 times now and there is so mucj to see as well as changing exhibits to keep your attention f you're a regular visitor. Great stuff.
by the way - god gift shop and an ok cafe.

“You need more than one visit .... fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

This is a new museum full of variety and interest. The grandsons were captivated by many aspects of the displays and the section of the old overhead railway was great.

“Another great free museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Again, as in the other museums, we could have spent much longer here than time permitted. Excellent displays and exhibits telling the story of this marvellous city, very hands on and impressive signed information films!

“Good fun :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Enjoyed ourselves in this museum. Had a good laugh at the school kids singing 'yellow submarine' by The Beatles, at the top of their voices. Would recommend this museum :)

“Great museum, AVOID the cafe!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

Museum was brilliant, great attractions things to do for the kids, the museum was brilliant and perfect. Decently recommend to anyone. But after spending 2 hours with a child we decided to go to the water front cafe situated inside the museum is terrible, firstly it's over priced, I order 2 bowels of chips for me and my partner and a kids snack pack, they had no sandwiches left, although the lady kindly made a cheese batch to go into the box. When we sat down the lady came out with order number nine, we were order number eight, so with that in mind, two bowls of chips wouldn't take long. We must of waited 10 minutes before I got up and asked where our order is. Five minutes later our chips came, my little sister had already ate all her snack box so she was sat their bored whist me and my partner ate our chips... The chips were extremely hot, but not cooked. Certainly won't be eating there again. Better service at a McDonald's.
