Been before great day plenty to see and do we were very surprised on the size of it. There far too much to see and do in Liverpool since our last visit the city really really improved entertainment and the city is excellent. We stayed in Ibis Hotel almost opposite Albert Docks, Liverpool. Looking forward to coming back.

Jam packed with interesting artefacts and stories of days gone by. An absolute must for fans of anything Titanic-related. Models of the ships are displayed in glass cabinets and are made to the highest standards

It's free and worth every penny. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Just not enough time in Liverpool to spend to long in here.

My family found this museum very informative. One gets better acquainted with past tragedies at sea, since one gets to know about the experiences of individuals - and their families - on the boats. A stand which we found particularly interesting exhibited the different menus served on the Titanic to people of different social classes; the lady who spoke to... More

The diner is on the top floor but there are lifts. We requested a table by the window and were not disappointed with a lovely view across Albert docks. We opted for afternoon tea and didn't have to wait too long. The standard arrived with 3 different fillings of finger sandwiches and a small bun with smoked salmon and cream... More

My personal favourite, four floors of exhibits of Liverpools enormous maritime history. Some beautiful models of historical ships, and unique memorabilia from the various shipping companies formed in the region. Also a very poignant display on the Titanic, which gave fascinating accounts of some of the passengers and crew. Most importantly, a sobering yet personal account of the slavery industry,... More

I visited with two teenage grandchildren specifically to see the slavery museum on the third floor. It is very well done. The full horror of slavery and the role of Liverpool in it is shown in well constructed exhibitions. A moving and instructive presentation.
