Discover the stories and faces behind Liverpool’s fascinating maritime history at this dedicated museum, right in the heart of the Albert Dock cultural precinct.
During the early 20th century, Liverpool was considered Britain’s "gateway to the world." It was home to one of the biggest ports in Europe, and the busiest in the United Kingdom. Liverpool was a major trade center, the departure point for some of the world’s most luxurious ocean liners and played a crucial role during World War II. History enthusiasts and boat lovers will enjoy a day out at the museum, while families will love the educational games targeted at children.
Explore the interactive exhibits that make the Merseyside Maritime Museum one of the most popular attractions in the city. Dedicated exhibition spaces tell the story of the Titanic and the story that unfolded following the ship's departure from the United Kingdom. See rare video footage and photographs of passengers on the docks.
Learn about the role that the British Navy played during World War II, and why Liverpool was chosen as the major naval facility during that time. In the basement of the building the fascinating Seized! The Border and Customs Uncovered gallery displays the amazing collection of items seized from smugglers at the Liverpool port. Children will love the Cargo-a-go-go game, an educational freight handling game where boxes are balanced on a ship. Follow the children’s trails that traverse the museum to reach a number of other child-friendly activities, including the Sea Urchins play area.
