Liverpool is rich in history and culture and therefor has a lot to show case. But which museum will be most interesting for you? Take a look below so you can pick which museums you would like to tick off.


Museum of Liverpool


The Museum of Liverpool reflects on the city’s global influence and this is how you will learn how the city was really shaped, mainly by the port and the people. The museum was opened in July 2011 and has become a landmark on the waterfront due to its interesting design.


Galleries include ‘The People’s Republic’ and this is where you can learn more about the citizens of Liverpool and their unique identity, developing over the last 200 years. Also on show is the Overhead Railway, the first electric elevated railway in the world.

Price: Free

Opening times: 10am-5pm


Merseyside Maritime Museum


The Port of Liverpool has had a huge influence over the city and how it established itself as one of the leading cities in Britain. Based on the popular Albert Dock, the Maritime Museum includes ship models, maritime paintings, and even some full sized vessels.

Interested in Titanic? The city of Liverpool has strong ties with this once great ocean liner, and this is the place to learn all about that ill-fated crossing to New York.

The Beatles Story


The Beatles remain one of the most well known bands in the world, even decades after they last played music. But did you know they came from Liverpool? Being the world’s largest permanent exhibition devoted to the lives and times of the Beatles, this is a must see for any music fan.

International Slavery Museum


An international hub for resources on human rights, and a popular visitor attraction in its own right, the International Slavery Museum looks at both historical and modern slavery.

The transatlantic slave trade was one of the biggest of its kind and in the late 18th Century, Liverpool was a huge slaving port and a large portion of the city’s growth was down to such activity.

Here you can learn stories from both the Africans who were sadly traded, and the people involved in the orchestration of this event.
