  • Great experience, very new architectural building positioned in a great location. A lot of info about the Liverpool life connected to the docks life as well as local LGBT community, historical sites backing up thousands of years. They also have a learning centre for the kids. Our 7 years old daughter enjoyed all the experience there as well as us the adults.
  • Fairly interesting for various ages. Not a bad canteen. I enjoyed the pop up skiffle band in the foyer. The kids loved them.
  • Nice museum. Learnt a lot about Liverpool's history on our visit here. It looks like work is still on going on the building but I like the space and the light and I love the way they show you some of the best bits about Liverpool. I have new found respect for the city and it's people after being there.
  • Great museum 3 levels too much to take in on one visit recommend the cafe. Had the Scouse and beetroot. Recommend finding a table before collecting your food
  • This is a place you must visit. It's free to get in. So so much history in here. Goes back through the years. There's part of an old team and team line from Liverpool. And so so much more. Great place.
