It's quite unfortunate that the museum is located on the Albert Dock, as there doesn't seem to be much down there anymore. I regularly come to the museum (usually twice a year) when I want a cheap day out with my family. It could do...More

We popped in en-route to our apartment and spent an enjoyable hour here. I would say it is interesting for older kids and adults but perhaps not much younger kids.

Spent most time in the Slavery Museum on the third floor. Masses of information and exhibits. Pleased to see the relevance and today's issues highlighted. Good cafe.

Another free place to visit but relays on donations. A not to be missed museum whilst at the Albert Docks and focuses on Liverpool including the Titanic, life at sea and lots more. Recommended place to visit.

Lots to take in and see. Lots of history to absorb. You could spend a weekend in there or walk around in a hour. Both good. It’s free

Spent 3.5 hours here and only left as we had a train to catch. Amazing museum with so much to see. It's free - which is unbelievable - so do donate if you can as must cost a fortune to upkeep.

there's plenty of interactive exhibits, plus the usual hidden item trail you get in museums. not sure about crafty things as I wasn't really looking for them, but there should be plenty to keep them entertained
