Merseyside Maritime Museum reviews
A place to live the history of the Albert docks, so much shipping and merchant navy information. Lots of information on the world wars and how the dock played such an import part. Definitely visit..... more »
Good range of things to see and read up on. Very good way to spend a few hours. The displays had lots of interesting historical information, from slavery, trade, boating and the local area. more »
Came specifically for the Titanic exhibition which was a fascinating insight from the perspective of Liverpool as a city. The exhibit gave wider context to the city’s social and economic history, which nicely set up the specific impact of the Titanic disaster on the city. On my next visit to Liverpool I would love to explore what else the museum has to offer. Sounds like the other sections are just as interesting.
A fascinating showcase British maritime history. Lots to see and experience here. Love the models, the artifacts and the stories. The information about the Lusitania, Mauritania and other great ships was touching as my great great grandfather worked at the shipyard in Birkenhead during the time the Mauritania was built. The museum is free to enter and has good amenities. A great way to spend a few hours at the Albert Dock
