  • Hay the Museum of Livetpool sant my email is nbrooks16@hotmail all my love Nicola,xxxxxxxxxxx
  • Excellent, full of interesting and informative exhibits about the wonderful history of Liverpool. Some great interactive displays and easy access for prams and wheelchairs. And it's all free! Would recommend the play area to the right of the main entrance where they run free half an hour sessions which are great fun for the kids.
  • It's a free museum for tourists to learn more about the city, but I can't help feeling it could've been so much better. The building itself is a hideous lump of concrete on a beautiful historic waterfront, and was shortlisted for the Carbuncle Cup (an award for Britain's ugliest architecture). There's tons of wasted space inside, and the gallery space really isn't all that big. Some of the exhibits are incredibly dull (let's not even talk about the copy of Beatles Rock Band proudly displayed in a glass cabinet, eh?). As a kid I loved all the trains, buses trams etc in Liverpool Museum, but half of the large objects are now tucked away in a warehouse since there's simply no room for them. Still a very pleasant way to spend an hour or two, but it could've been so much more.
  • If you want to learn about Liverpool and its history, visit this museum. It’s great! Gives the visitor a broad introduction to all things Liverpool and its people. Presentations relating to the city’s social, economic, sporting and artistic past (and present) are very accessible. It’s an eclectic mix of the serious and the trivial. The building is a marvel in its own right. The views across the dockside areas are fantastic! The real bonus is that it’s FREE.
  • I love museums, and this is a great museum. There are plenty of interactive displays for the children to get involved with. It's great for kids and adults.
