  • Had a great day out here. Loads to see and the things to learn was amazing. The titanic, maritime during wartime etc. We went with our 10yr old daughter and she loved it and was never bored. The surrounding area if other museums to visit was great. I highly recommend visiting these museums and it's a great family day out. Showing your children what life was like and the experiences they went through during this time is excellent. Makes a chance from theme parks. Love this place and will be returning to visit other museums here. Excellent day, excellent place.
  • Lots of Historic Facts. Great place to visit to get an indepth insight into the history of Liverpool, it's shipping history and so much more. We didn't have enough time to read all that we would have liked to as it would have taken 3-4 hrs but we got a good overview on each floor level.
