The building has been renovating to a very high standard and having a glass roof allows lots of light into what could be a very dark and dingy place. There is a good collection of exhibits for viewing and plenty of people on hand if help is required.

Visited here on a Saturday and wasn't too busy. Plenty to see and we especially liked the space presentation on the top floor with the Tom Peake footage from when he was on the ISS being the highlight as I hadn't seen it before. Some exhibits were in the process of being returned/renewed so there were one or two empty... More

My husband and I visited the museum it is aimed at families with younger children. However was a bit disappointed that the Egyptian exhibit wasn't yet open. But the exhibits are hands on a child friendly, there is a small aquarium on the 1st floor however when we went at least three of the aquarium exhibits were being renovated. There... More

Visited this museum on our last day and enjoyed looking at the world cultures section as well as the aquarium and Natural World exhibit. Had a pleasant meal in the cafe before getting back on the tour bus to take us to the Mersey Ferry.

Liverpool World museum has mainly 5 floors like Planetarium, Bugs museum, Culture museum, Science museum, etc. For me, the most interesting sections are Bugs museum and culture museum. Its very uncommon to see all kinds of live as well as preserved bugs and huge cockroaches in a museum explaining how they sustain and feed. For the culture museum, they have... More

Loved our visit here this morning. Informative, friendly and enthusiastic staff in the space, fossil and discovery sections helped and encouraged our children to enjoy and get involved in their visit. My daughter loved learning about the minerals, rocks, animals and plants and working out the categories. The museum curator made her feel so special when she got the answers... More

I went with my 11 year old son. The space display is so dark you can't see the exhibits or read the labels. The aquarium is dirty, my son commented "poor fish,too many in each tank, and it's not clean for them". The cafe was too hot, poorly ventilated and very very noisy. We only went to 2 floors and...
