Im not big on naval history, but the story of Liverpool pilots was really interesting. You send a whole day here if you wanted to. Me and my Mom ate lunch in the cafe on two days because the Scouse was good. The best part though for me was the slavery museum. I thought it was really well done, I... More

I recommend this to anyone wishing to spend a couple of hours taking your time learning about maritime history. There are several floors of information to take your time wandering around and immersing yourself in.

We came here with our children for a day out. We really enjoyed the museums. The slavery museum part was especially factual and not eldest was intrigued by that museum in particular and how slavery has changed the modern world and the consequences from such actions of our ancestors. The youngest one struggled with the museums at time as there... More

Lots of info on the slave trade which was quite shaming. Second world war exhibits which were interesting and informative. The section on the Titanic and its sister ships was particularly poignant. Don't think the Titanic will ever be forgotten

Came here many years ago but was accompanying children on a school trip and always said I'd come back... This museum is absolutely worth a visit. Free, although well worth a donation and opportunity to do so as you walk around. We began in the restaurant...great place to start off if you're hungry. Both my husband and I had the... More

Definitely worth a visit, lots to see, Lusitania exhibition very good as is Titanic exhibition, customs and excise exhibits are very good too. Plus it's free only a donation if you want. Also the 4th floor slavery exhibition is a must for schools.

The Maritime museum is on 4 floors, each having a specific theme. There's a floor of smuggling, one of slave trade, one of the Titanic and one of the Mauritania. You really can't read all the information, as there is so much, so you either do a floor at a time, keep going back, or you skim the surface, of... More
