Fundamental and brief introduction of the city's history. The museum is not big, so you can simply finish the visiting in around two hours. The impressive things I found was a few statues of color painted Lambananas, an eight minutes Beatles Show in 2nd floor, and the seaside walk in the morning before the museum opened.

Worth a visit if you're in Liverpool, one of the smaller museums but very interesting for the background of Liverpool.

This is a great place to get a feel for Liverpool if you only have limited time. It's an easy place to pop in and out of too and they have a Beatles and football show which are worth seeing.

We visited the museum on a midweek afternoon with friends during school term time so it was not too busy. The ground floor has lots of stuff about the history of the docks and some of the local companies such as Tate and Lyle which provided so much employment in the first half of the 20th century. We also spent... More

The museum is an intersectional destination for both children and adults. Recommends 4-D expirience of The Beatles.
