Port Sunlight Museum

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The perfect place to begin your journey exploring this historic garden village. The Museum tells the story of industrialist William Lever and how he created a high quality village to house the workers at his soap factory. The story of the village is told through film shows, artefacts, archive photographs and models. Displays also explore Port Sunlight at War, the events around the first gig The Beatles played with Ringo Starr which happened in the village, and stories behind some of the famous products made here, such as Sunlight & Lifebuoy soap. Entry to the museum also includes access to the Edwardian worker's cottage. This new attraction, next door to the main museum building, has recreated this historic building as it might have looked in 1913.

This is my favourate museum ever. I mean I get so carried away and interested at all museums...but this one has a touch of uniqueness about it., and I cannot explain it because you have to go there to understand.
Where it is situated is so beautifull and to think that those amazing houses were built for the workers is unbelievable in todays era.
From the moment you enter this museum, time seems to stop and although you want to stop and look at what the wonderfull art in front of you is ...you simply have to get to the next one.
The artwork is so profoundly amazing, and my favourate being ' Dante., well to actually see it there is like a dream come true to me.
It has so much going for it, I am so surprised that some people have never been there.
I took my husband along there (and he is most definatley no museum type) but he was so impressed he wants to go back also.
I wish I could live in that place and wander around forever...

Very interesting museum, useful in order to put Port Sunlight into historical context. Reasonable admission fee plus concessions, £3.95 for adults which I believe is valid for a year but suggest you check that. The 20 minute film is excellent and sets the scene. Worth a visit before you walk around the village. Nice café too serving simple straightforward food, soup, sandwiches, baked spuds, cakes and scones.

Cost £3.95 for an adult. The introductory film was good and very informative. I felt the rest really didn't warrant the cost.
