This exciting new space houses many interesting and informative displays and exhibits. Of particular interest are the film shows on "The Beatles" and "Football - Liverpool and Everton". Many interesting facts to discover about the history of this great city, and great views of the beautiful architecture of the Pier Head buildings.

After being disappointed by the Maritime Museum and especially the International Slavery Museum we were pleasantly surprised to find the Museum of Liverpool was good. There are lots of interesting displays here that tell the story of Liverpool.

Interesting airy and pleasant place to learn about life in Liverpool. The part I enjoyed most was the story of Liverpool immigration/emigration and the music story,

Visiting museum of Liverpool was an unforgetable experience for me and my girlfriend as we both love history, you can mess around a museum whole day and you'll not get enough.

What a Star place this is. Nice little local stories at every turn. Lovely people. My only grouse would be the slight desperation to get people out before closing time. We were in Liverpool for two days and because the weather was more like Manchester we spent time in this Museum towards the end of both days. We were sent... More

We were 4 adults from out of town and paid a visit purely to get out if the cold and were glad we did! Free to walk round and see the different exhibitions followed by a reasonable hot lunch in the cafe afterwards.

We loved the fascinating Museum of Liverpool. Really has it all. The timeline display was brilliant, following Liverpool through the ages right up to the present time.

The museum is a lively place and will appeal to all ages. The presentation is excellent. There are short films to watch on football and The Beatles. The Beatles one is better in my opinion. There are good sections on transport and also military history. All is free. Well worth a visit.
