Port Sunlight is a place of exceptional interest and the museum is worth a visit on it's own. To walk round the rest of the village is amazing, it is well kept and very nice.

We visited Port Sunlight on a sunny afternoon and walked around the village enjoying the different architectural styles. The museum building itself was attractive and it housed a variety of interesting exhibits. The worker's cottage was a highlight. There is free parking throughout the village.

Although the museum is fascinating they charge extra for a map of the site which I think should be included in the price. Also the coffee shop was closed which was a real let down especially at 1 o’clock on a Thursday afternoon.

It is a small exhibition all on one level with a level entry from the street. The staff there are very helpful and friendly and will assist those with difficulties.
