Overall not too bad, ancient Egypt exhibition was interesting, was expecting museum to be bigger than it was, cafe was ok , tuna sandwich was a bit bland but reasonable prices, its worth a wander if you've time to spare and don't fancy shopping malls

Full of many interesting exhibits about the history of Liverpool, particularly the last 100 years. Pleasant cafe with healthy food. Well recommended for a family visit or a visit by those new to Liverpool.

Definatly worth a visit, but best to go when it first opens as a lot of school children there from about 11am. We loved learning all about the history of Liverpool, all free or a small donation. You won't be disappointed with this museum.
