The Maritime Museum is situated on the Albert Dock and is free. Each floor looks out on the surrounding docks and appears to be laid out as if you are on a ship. On the first floor is such an interesting overview using film clips and pictures telling you the story of the sinking of the Lusitania, the war and... More

Very much enjoyed the Titanic exhibition in the Maritime Museum. Also I had particular interest in the Lusitania exhibition as had a great great uncle who sailed to to the United States on her. It is free to visit too!

A fascinating glimpse into maritime history, especially the area devoted to Liverpool's involvement in the Slave Trade. Well worth a visit if you're looking round the Albert Dock

A nice and complex museum of the maritime history of Liverpool and England. Not very much modern museum-technical solutions, more traditional models of all ships. Some films and touching personal stories told. This museum needs a couple of hours a visit.

Visited recently with my son as my wife was working at event nearby. He's 6 and I wondered how interesting he would find it. I needn't have worried. It's free to get in but they encourage donations. It's definitely worth dipping into your pocket for whatever loose change you have. We spent more than an hour wandering around and he... More

A must see museum which incorporates the Slavery museum. The museum is beautifully situated in the old dock lands. The building has been thoughtfully restored and gives a fascinating insight into Liverpool's maritime history including its links to theTitanic and Lusitania. The slavery section within this museum is a must see. It was very emotional and the cruelty endured by... More

Fantastic harbour and Titanic history. Walked around for two hours..... A lot of good old sound clips and pictures. Nice stories and the time just flyes away.

After reading all the reviews the maritime museum sounded like an interesting place to visit with various floors including a titanic exhibition and a slavery exhibition. I have to say honestly myself and my friend were very disappointed with it. It was mostly models of ships/boats and a lot of the exhibitions were videos to watch as you walk through.... More
