Very impressive historical displays,,,especially the port and maritime sections and the effect of WW2 on the City. Only had a couple of hours there but recommend you set aside half a day.

Great location and great museum full of interesting facts and exhibits covering all aspect of the city's history including trade, music, sport, transport and so on. Well spaced out and free too so you simply cannot complain and anyone who does needs a lobotomy!
