This museum has an incredible history of the inventiveness and common products today that we take for granted. Well organized, wonderful place to take children or adults. Make sure you schedule at least a few hours to see this museum.

Was booked, with a friend, on the tour of the world's first commercial wet dock which is under Liverpool One and starts at the museum. Despite the awful weather the two local guys made the experience very enjoyable, I love the scouse sense of humour....More

A really interesting and unique museum with some great exhibits. I particularly enjoyed the Titanic exhibit. My only criticism would be is that some of the areas need a little bit of TLC to keep the place looking ship shape (see what I did there)

We really enjoyed this museum, The Titanic Exhibition was very good. We then enjoyed a wonderful lunch upstairs with outstanding views out to the sea.

The slavery exhibition paired with the maritime displays give a really good balance of the ciities' relationship with the sea. Well laid out, lots to see, hear, watch.

The Merseyside Maritime Museum is absolutely brilliant, in fact one of the best museums I have visited. Free entry (donations accepted), this large museum on the docksides of Liverpool is, in my opinion, a must-visit attraction in the city. It begins in the basement level...More

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
