Overview

The perfect place to begin your journey exploring this historic garden village. The Museum tells the story of industrialist William Lever and how he created a high quality village to house the workers at his soap factory. The story of the village is told through film shows, artefacts, archive photographs and models. Displays also explore Port Sunlight at War, the events around the first gig The Beatles played with Ringo Starr which happened in the village, and stories behind some of the famous products made here, such as Sunlight & Lifebuoy soap. Entry to the museum also includes access to the Edwardian worker's cottage. This new attraction, next door to the main museum building, has recreated this historic building as it might have looked in 1913.

the museum brings to life the history of the village's creation and the splendid ideals which inspired Lord Lever to create it the way he did; the material is a good balance between a factual time-line of the village's development and coverage of the villagers'...More
