Another piece of Albert Dock to see

We stopped here returning from Dock back to Lime Street Station. Nice place with the interesting exhibition. Good to see.

The welcome is top class, and if you have a Maritime interest allow half a day to visit. Remember on the floors above there is the Slavery Museum.

After a visit to southport in the morning we came to Liverpool and thought we would give this place a try. We have two disabled people we look after and it was brilliant for them to experience the things they seen. It's very wheelchair friendly and accessible to each floor. Will be visiting again soon!

I am not a museum person but I found this very interesting, they have a section on slavery as that was a big thing shipping slaves to the US from Liverpool, also ships being lost during the war, gives a lot of information

We got "thrown out" of this museum on two consecutive days because by closing time we were still engrossed in the exhibits. Highly recommended and not one bit boring.

We enjoyed this. Lots of kids running around and screaming. Otherwise quite a bit to see. Worth a short visit.

This museum is very modern and spacious and well laid out. The information is very accessible. I spent most of my time learning about the Lusitania and the Titanic. There is so much information in the museum that it is best visited on several occasions. What a wonderful free resource. A wealth of information displayed in a way that is... More
