Interesting selection of Museum Items about life in Liverpool. Number of activities to interest children. Shame the Beatles part was closed for changes.

Totally concerning the development of Liverpool through the ages. Some great stuff on the docks, development of merchants and trade, the links with China, the overhead railway, and everyday life across the years. Some great interactive exhibits plus daily shows. Definitely worth a few hours.

The best aspect of this Museum is the wide variety of topics on the theme of Liverpool. You can spend as much or as little time as you like on history, locality celebrity, wartime etc without boredom setting in.
