I love this museum. I thought I knew a fair bit about the city my family grew up in but after visiting this museum I was in awe. A definite must-see.

A very good place to go if you have bad weather as we did.This museum is impressive,and wel laid out.It is located in a good position within walking distance of the town and within spitting distance of the " Liver " building. If your into your museums a considerable amount of time should be set aside.

We visited Liverpool for the first time and we were amazed to find that entrance to the museum is FREE. We would have been prepared to pay to go in as we found it very interesting. We will definitely visit again.

A very informal experience with great exhibits that our kids really enjoyed. We're always encouraging them to visit museums with varying degrees of success, but this was a real winner! They loved the craft activities too. Excellent afternoon out!
