  • This is a great museum telling you all about the history of Liverpool. Although now I see Liverpool used to do loads, now it doesn't... But it's a good museum and there are lots of interactive things to do. It's free to go and is good for all of the family. Covers 3 floors with different themes if Liverpool. Nice as located on the Docks too.
  • We love the museum... its free (donations are welcomed to ensure that the museum continues to run)... informative and activities for the kids to find. My kids loved it. X
  • It's great. There are hands on activities for young children and plenty for older children to see. The staff are friendly and the site is clean and safe. The location is superb and you get great views of the Pier Head and the Mersey.
  • One of the attractions in Liverpool. Next to Albert dock. It's is on the same line nearby everything you will find
  • Brilliant museum. Loved wandering around and seeing the pride taken in the city. Cafe and loos were the only let down
