This place is in a great location on Albert Dock and I am going to echo others and remind you that it is free! There are lots of interesting maritime stories about the Titanic, Mauretania and Lusitania right alongside the Slavery museum, which is as educational and interesting as it is incredibly sad too. My wife and I wondered around... More

We were a little disappointed with the titanic display as we were expecting objects from it, however this was still interesting.

First visit to Liverpool, decided to go to this museum. Certainly not disappointed, very good exhibits depicting the story of Liverpool as a maritime city. Best of all it is free.

Great that these museums in Liverpool are free....access for all and this one is particularly worth visiting. The slavery section is very informative as is the Titanic section. Will go back to see the rest next time we go to Liverpool. So much to see.

Liverpool has a great history as a port and was the port of registration for many shipping lines and ocean going liners including the White Star Line and Titanic amongst many others. The museum is a great way to spend a few hours, there are a number of exhibits and models on display - one for the boys !

We visited here because we had read about the slavery museum on the top floor. It was very informative and sad to see how things use to be, but great to see how things have moved on. We then visited the Titanic floor and were amazed at the things we didn't know. To read survivors stories was heart wrenching. Great... More
