Very interesting Titanic exhibition should interest most even those possibly not into Maritime & Boats. Also Slavery exhibition in same building. Coffee shop/restaurant on top floor with great views, which if you haven't paid to come into to Museum you can certainly afford to have a tea/coffee or lunch.

Even for non-maritime types, there is a lot to see here. Actual naval sorts will be thrilled. Exhibits on Liverpool's rich naval history.

A really good museum with lots of displays to read. This was interesting to both my husband and I - I enjoy the real life aspect and stories from people who were there, and my husband likes the more technical and engineering side of things. A free museum which is well worth a visit

However, the exhibitions on the World Wars and the link to maritime history was also very interesting. There was lots to see in this museum and unfortunately I did... More

Visited the Merseyside Maritime Museum on 19th July 2016. Myself and my husband we're walking round the docks and decided to pay a visit. I work in the travel industry and always find maritime interesting as it is not something I have a huge amount of experience in. This museum has a wide array of displays, from the history of...
