We always come to the Maritime museum when we visit Liverpool. It's so interesting with so much to see. Could easily spend hours in here if you read everything. Brilliant!

Allow plenty of time to look around this very good museum. Over several floors theirs plenty to see and also good for children to see and keep them interested. Also a very nice tea room when you require some refreshments. Have a great time,we did.
