Overview

At International Slavery Museum you'll find out about the millions of people, both in the past and today, who have been taken into slavery, in particular those who were part of the transatlantic slave trade between about 1500 and 1865. Liverpool was a major slaving port so it is fitting that the museum is in Liverpool. The museum is on the third floor of the Merseyside Maritime Museum building. Entry is free.

Another such place which falls into the trap of thinking slavery is something of the past that only happened to one group of people.

Lots to see here, both pictures vedeos and artifacts. Don't go if you are of a sensitive disposition.

There wasn't a huge amount to see here, but the stuff that was there was very moving and sort of makes you realise how lucky we are to live in a relatively enlightened age. Not a must see, but worth seeing.

We expected more about the history of slavery in Liverpool, but it was all about abolition with some strange native villages thrown in. Not what we were expecting at all.

We visited the museum having learnt about the wealth Liverpool accrued as a direct result of the slave trade. We joined a free tour and, whilst overall the guide provided a clear and informative summary of the history of the European slave trade, the references...More

i would say if you look around the museum and read and listen to the recordings, about 3 hours there is a tea room on the top floor
