I found the Titanic section the most interesting display in the museum. This included information about all the names of passengers/crew and if they survived or not. There were also props from the film on display. There is so much to do in the Maritime museum and I didn’t really get the chance to see everything but its worth checking out on a rainy day in Albert Dock.

Free or not found the place a waste of time. Admittedly I'm 25 but like most museums. Just unfortunately not this one. Again there was a lot of school trips in when we were there which is probably keeping the place going!

The Merseyside Maritime Museum is located in Albert Dock and on arrival there were celebrations taking place for the Chinese New Year. At reception I was given a floor Guide and a warm welcome to the Museum.

Spread over many floors the museum covers a lot of ground with a vast array of exhibits and artwork. Everything is explained about the importance of Liverpool with it’s international seafaring connections. There are several museums within a museum including the International Slavery Museum and Seized! The Border and Customs Uncovered.

A museum that is well worth a visit when in the Albert Dock area.

The slavery and customs parts are interesting but I don't care about maritime. I only go because other people drag me along. The food was okay here.

Very interesting didn't get round to seeing everything will have to make another visit. A lovely building and all the displays are well set out. There is plenty of room to go round and everything is well sign posted
