Such a good place to visit and lots to do catering for all ages. I was particularly engrossed in the music and sport and my partner loved the film section. Although it is free we did make a donation - good afternoon out.

There is a great free interactive exhibit for kids. Its timed and you need to get a free ticket on the day from the info desk but we had no issues getting one only an hour before. Recommended for 2-5 years

Lovely light, airy, spacious building with large open staircases and great views from large windows of the Liver Buildings and Pier Head. The contents of the museum are incredibly varied and diverse and really well presented. There is truly something for everybody here, both educational and entertaining. I was too late for the shows, they were on during the morning... More
