Definitely not a museum, it is actually part of the Maritime Museum and only takes up a floor so I would have liked more. As a bit of a history geek I was looking forward to seeing everything there and it didn't disappoint, it had some great stuff on the slave ships and some poignant videos on the treatment of slaves, as well as the effects the slave trade has on people today and the modern-day slaves. Didn't teach me anything I hadn't already learnt in school or from books that I have read but it was interesting nonetheless. Would have liked a bit more on abolition and some of it could be better explained (such as the St Helens bit - no idea what was going on there) but overall I'm glad I went.
