I love this place it's innovative, exciting and has plenty to offer all ages. From the trading days right through to modern day there are plenty of things to discover about this beautiful town. They often have exhibitions and events for children throughout the year!

The museums in Liverpool offer many different experiences. There are so many to choose from - Tate, world museum, Beatles tour etc etc. This museum would be great if you are visiting Liverpool briefly as it gives an overview of all things scouse. What makes the city - well this venue strongly emphasises the people and their rich stories -... More

Wonderful exhibits! It is always fun to visit the UK and see museum exhibits about my country. The animals of Egypt is a must see! Great for families and kids as they have dinosaurs and shows you can see.

The Museum building itself is worth a visit. Loved all exhibits. From space to Egyptian artifects. A family can make a day of it and its FREE!

This museum started off really well and it does have a lot to see in regards to Liverpool history. They have quite a lot of hands on stuff for the kids but it seems that when it gets broken or damaged they don't do much to fix it. It's still worth a visit in my opinion

When you mention the word ‘Museum’, many people thing ‘Boring’. Think again. Based in a modern building near to the Albert Dock, the museum is a great place to take the grandchildren; lots of things to do, see, touch and learn with hands on activities for young children. The location is superb and you get great views of the Pier... More

Probably my favourite Museum in Liverpool. Having moved away from Liverpool, this Museum really does explain why Liverpool was such an important city and why Scousers are so proud of their city.
