Good informative modern museum. Wasn't a clear route to take around the museum and the displays were a bit mixed in together and not in clear defined areas, such as the sport displays were mixed up with music and tv areas , so caused some confusion with the story of the museum. However an enjoyable couple of hours spent there.

This is the second time we have visited this museum - we didn't manage to see everything the first time. We'll have to go back again too because we wanted more time to read and savour it all. There is simply so many things to look at/touch/read/listen to every which way you turn. We particularly like the people of Liverpool... More

This museum is really great. It is packed full of really interesting stuff and our 10 and 13 year old daughters found it great. The staff were friendly and the museum itself is a good size for kids-i.e.- it's not massive and the exhibits are all perfectly presented.

While not up there with the very best museums I've seen this is a good, modern interactive space giving an interesting insight into the history of Liverpool from prehistory to modern Liverpools music and football culture, taking in the industrial revolution, Liverpools part in the world wars, the docks and shipping and everything each of these brought to the city...

The grandchildren loved visiting the museum, and it brought back a lot of memories for me too, I remember the old museum had a victorian street in it, which I loved as a child, I think that would be a great thing if that was to be introduced again.

Just a small museum but it is good to memorial the old stories. Could be half an hour will finish to look around here. Especially on the Second World War exhibitions. By the way, I really like the first ground exhibition which is a big big train named LION, it is Awesome to take pics. Anyway, hope it will useful... More

This 3 story museum is absolutely fabulous. It has all about Liverpool's history and culture. I particularly found the area on the ground floor about Liverpool's links to China interesting. A good place to spend a couple of hours.

We were hoping to visit the museum, but it has been closed for some time and isn't likely to open in the very near future, so we were quite disappointed. But it is in a good location and they are doing a lot to improve facilities and what is being shown, so when it reopens, it should be good.

Find the point of view, from where this building resembles to a Sea Gull. Splendid! Also, the exhibition inside is well-organised! Unique items from an unrepetable city!
