Find out about the longest and arguably one of the most important campaigns of World War II at Merseyside Maritime Museum, occupying warehouse block D at the Albert Dock. The city’s seafaring heritage is brought to life at this museum, which was designed to narrate the history of Liverpool’s ongoing international maritime importance. Discover the city’s role in the transatlantic slave trade, emigration, the development of the merchant marine, and the story of RMS Titanic.

  • Staff very friendly, interesting facts about Liverpool and the docks. The information about the titanic was interesting and very moving. I would recommend a visit when in Liverpool.  more »
  • Worth a gentle stroll around - or maybe two. Really interesting re Titanic and Lusitania. Spaced out over several floors so you can start where you like.  more »
  • Wonderful exhibitions, still some no-touch stations, but did not distract from the overall place. Not from liverpool, but enjoy the history of the places I visit. It seems much expanded from my last visit 3 years ago. I knew I wasn't going to be disappointed and as it is free to get in with a suggested £5 donation, I put a tenner in the pot. Much cheaper than some of the exhibitions and museums I've been to in our country's capital. I want to say a big thank you to the staff that meet you at the door and explain how you can around. Also with social distancing being relaxed, it was so helpful that every one was respectful of others, including all the well behaved children.
  • Great museum, been visiting here since it first opened in 1980, gets better each time I visit. New Life on Board gallery is very interesting and informative. International Slavery Museum should be visited by everybody.
