Admission is free at this museum and it contains lots of interesting information housed over several floors. We particularly liked the Lusitania exhibition - although rather sad, it was a really informative presentation.

The maritime museum is a must for everybody. Lots to see and suitable for ages. My favourite is the section with paintings of Liverpool in its hey day.

Very historic and informative. I found this fascinating, though wrap up its quite a cold museum. A must though if coming to Liverpool, Beatles aside, this was the next main point of interest for us.

A wonderful museum charting Liverpool’s maritime history. Lots to see and do. Suitable for all ages. Fascinating information all around especially the international slavery museum. Very informative and tastefully put together. Highly recommended.

This is a well presented view of the history of Maritime Liverpool . The Battle of the Atlantic is of particular interest also the history of the White Star Line .

Having visited other maritime museums I felt that there was far too much written information against the actual displays. What I did read was fairly interesting but after a couple of hours of reading it was all becoming too much.

My initial disappointment at finding the Titanic display closed was quickly dispelled by the other displays. Loved the 'Battle of the Atlantic' display. But most thought provoking was the Museum of Slavery. It was both informative and disturbing. Like seems to be an inappropriate term...More

there's plenty of interactive exhibits, plus the usual hidden item trail you get in museums. not sure about crafty things as I wasn't really looking for them, but there should be plenty to keep them entertained
