Stopped by close to closing time for a quick look and were absorbed into the aquarium. The second floor natural history hands on experience was phenomenal, especially the interaction with the very engaging staff member, who showed us all kind she of fascinating articles.

I recently visited Liverpool Museum, I was extremely impressed by the visual elements also the friendly staff who were willing to give us as much information as we needed. Lovely museum but geared towards children rather than adults but well worth a visit

Five floors full of things to see, learn and touch! Dinosaurs, fossils, a very complete aquarium and plenty of activities to do with children. Lots of things to play with and everything very well explained. Staff very pleasant and smiling at all times. We will be back soon!

It's a nice little museum, very geared towards children. Good for little ones more so than adults I think. But I would probably visit again as we didn't finish looking at all the bugs, which are very cool.

Despite visiting Liverpool many times we had never before been to the World Museum and what a fantastic attraction it is. There was a visiting exhibition about mummification which was surprisingly fascinating and we adored the Clore exhibits with sliding drawers packed with fascinating exhibits. My personal favourite part was the Space and Time on 5th floor with the Major... More

Genuinely loved everything about the place as did the kids. Only gripe would be the stairs/lifts which was purely because I'm petrified of heights.
