  • Depending on what you're into this is a great museum! Well looked after, modern and fresh interior, interactive exhibits, and regular short films through the day. Was disappointed that maps weren't free and this hindered things slightly. Very impressive visually and in a good location to explore other tourist attractions. Cafe was nice too, good range of hot drinks, and home cooked meals and desserts.
  • What a museum absolutely fantastic. The history and stories within its walls is a day to remember. As Liverpool is a 'to visit' it does require a few days to see everything. Highly recommended.
  • Great place to visit. Modern well laid out and very informative. Lots of info and fascinating exhibits. Well worth a visit.
  • Great place to spend a few hours at, and learn about what makes Liverpool such a remarkable city. From football to the Beatles to its rich maritime history, you'll find it all here. Beautiful views from the large upper level windows.
  • I asked my parents to buy me the Liverpool Tea Light. I came home from work today to find a parcel for me. Its my Tea Light, thought they would bring it at end of year when they come to visit, but no the museum posted it over to me in New Zealand. Thank You for a brilliant service, I have my reminder of home light now.
