A fantastic building close to Pier Head Mersey Ferry Terminal but we found the exhibits to be a strange collection which often seemed unconnected. There may still be something there of interest for you but it didn't hit the spot for us.

Liverpool Museum is truly an experience you should not miss and plus the entrance is free. The history of the city is explained in all its parts and a visit to this museum is highly recommended.
