This museum is packed with models of ships, art work, ships in bottles and more. A whole section is dedicated to the Titanic which was built in Liverpool. And all set in the Albert Dock. Well worth a visit

A good range of permanent and changing exhibitions linked with ships and shipping. Researchers need to be aware that (apparent) budget cuts has resulted in access to the library being limited to Mondays and Tuesdays.

Well thought out displays with some fascinating information, only comment is that some displays are showing age and lack of maintenance ( lights not working when you push buttons etc) I suggest that they need to check all the displays and do some repair work
