I enjoyed the museum. Lots of ships outside. Good sections on The Titanic, Mauritania etc with models, artefacts and such like. Good displays. The Slavery Museum on the other hand was a travesty. A pathetic afterthought. Avoid. Pleasant cafe.

Visited this twice. Loved it both times. Don't underestimate the time required to really see everything. The Titanic exhibition will greatly benefit the place. Very comprehensive. A great display of the Ismay dinner service. A fascinating exhibition of the gay life in the merchant navy....More

Wandered around the Titanic exhibition, which was really interesting as you’d expect. So much information put across in an interesting way.

The museum was certainly well worth going to . So much to see and it's free! You need a day at least to view everything there.

This was an enjoyable museum. Once again learning facts about Liverpool and the surrounding area which had nothing to do with Penny or her lane.

Lots of displays and exhibitions, including Titanic, Lusitania, Slavery. Well worth seeing but be prepared to take your time. The exhibitions aren't to be skimped over as there's so much information and history to absorb. Highly recommend the Titanic and Slavery exhibitions.

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
