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.

  • Museum displays are very well laid out and exhibits are always very interesting. I only have one small issue - the gift shop has barely any room to manoeuvre a buggy (and not a large one at that!) Please can the layout be looked at to become more accessible for everyone. Looking forward to our next visit!
  • Great for a rainy day. Several floors, interesting. Some rooms a bit too dark to read the labels or even see the items. The top floor is the International Slavery Museum which was the reason we went, and was very well done.
