Another great Liverpool museum to visit. Lots to see and learn about, be it sport, music, miners, housing, or life over the years in Liverpool. There's a lot more than you might first expect. The museum has a number of galleries to look round as well as a few interactive pieces for adults and kids of all ages to enjoy

We spent a rainy morning here and were pleased with the expansive displays in this museum. The Beatles movie made it even nicer

Loved the giant Google map which allowed me to "visit" my relatives home spot without going there. Enjoyed the prehistoric exhibit of the fauna and humans who inhabited this area long before it was Liverpool

Had a lovely couple of hours exploring the museum. It is interactive and really interesting. Really liked the way it celebrated all aspects of the city including stories of every day citizens as well as celebrating the more famous names. Enjoyed the Beatles film on the second floor.
