Find out about the longest and arguably one of the most important campaigns of World War II at Merseyside Maritime Museum, occupying warehouse block D at the Albert Dock. 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. The museum’s exhibit marking the centenary of the Titanic's sinking includes numerous personal items recovered from the wreck, such as watches, cups, spectacles, and tiepins. The site also includes award-winning dining rooms, along with a gift shop, cafe, and lecture theater.

Merseyside Maritime Museum reviews
Popped in for unplanned visit, really enjoyed looking around all the exhibits especially the titanic area. Much larger than I expected as museum is spread over a few floors.

Very interesting, good displays and interesting artefacts. This is the second time I've visited in around 7 years and enjoyed it as much the second time as the first.

I was shocked how long I was here! I thought I would be no more than a half hour as ships and naval history is not my jam but there is so much more that is appealing: the Titanic exhibit, the history of Liverpool Blitz exhibit, etc. And the International Slavery museum on the 3rd floor is incredible: moving, interesting and so well-curated. I’ll save that for a separate review.
Free to enter but recommended donation of £5 (no pressure to donate though). Big museum with loads to see over 3 floors. Customs and Excise exhibit really interesting. Cafe was a bit rubbish - no menus anywhere and staff not particularly forthcoming but went to a food van outside the museum instead and then back in once we'd eaten. A few interactive things to do if you have kids. A good day out
