Very interesting place for people of all ages. My children loved it. You can learn so much, things you thought you knew but didn't know everything. A great day out. No charge but a donation is appreciated.

This is Liverpools natural history museum and is spread over 5 floors. Space is at the top with the Romans on one floor, dinosaurs and fossils, wildlife and bugs and a good aquarium. Good baby changing facilities

Yes you can without flash, and yes you can take your backpack. They have a locker room by the entrance which is handy if you don't want to lug your bags with you (useful!)

It is both inside and out, the street is cobbled but with good pavement access. The lifts inside are the swooshy new sort with open plan shafts.
