“A great Museum for all the family.”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We happened upon the museum whilst walking around Albert Dock. Very surprised upon entering that it was free (donations accepted). Everything was mapped out really well and spread over 5 floors. The Titanic floor was brilliant and some of the artifacts were great to see. The models of the ships were unbelievably accurate and some of the stories that you could listen to great and even kept my son interested. Would definitely go again on our next trip when we have more time to enjoy the whole museum.

“Great way to spend a couple of hours”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

I have gone here every time that I have gone to Liverpool and it is an interesting and fun way to spend a couple of hours while exploring Liverpool. The exhibits are very interesting and , obviously, due to the fact that Liverpool was the port of registry of the Titanic, there a number of exhibits on the ship and her crew\passengers

“Interesting Titanic material but only in the extra current exhibition”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

The primary purpose for the visit was to look at the Titanic exhibits. The actual permanent part of the museum dedicated to the Titanic was slightly disappointing however the additional exhibition was very informative and educational. There are a few recovered items from the Titanic which bring it to life but there is plenty of other really interesting material.

We also took a quick look into the Slavery exhibition and were a little disappointed with that area, it felt disjointed and seemed to lack real substance. On the whole the museum can have a bit of a disorganised feel as the layout is somewhat confused.
