About

Submerge yourself in Liverpool’s historic seafaring past at the Merseyside Maritime Museum. Found in the heart of the Albert Dock, it’s the ideal location to explore and uncover the development of the world famous port. Boats, paintings, ship models, ship wrecked objects, uniforms and more bring Liverpool’s nautical history to life. Discover the city's pivotal role as the gateway to the new world.

Highlights include the Life at Sea display, telling the story of the merchant navy. You can learn about Liverpool's role in The Battle of the Atlantic during World War Two or immerse yourself in the Museum’s extensive Maritime archives. See how artists have portrayed the port of Liverpool and the many ships once found on the river Mersey in the Art and the Sea Gallery, and enjoy a changing temporary exhibitions programme.

Throughout the museum, plenty of exhibits, trails and free events make Merseyside Maritime Museum the perfect place to visit with the kids. Ask at the information desk, visit us online or pick up a Family Guide inside to find out what’s happening. At the information desk you can also book a tour of the Old Dock, the world’s first commercial enclosed wet dock, and during the summer months, the Edmund Gardner pilot ship.

On the 4th floor, enjoy incredible food accompanied by stunning views of the Albert Dock and waterfront at the 2010 Michelin Guide-listed Maritime Dining Room. On the ground floor, the Quayside Café serves lighter bites and refreshments and nearby is the shop for all of your nautical-themed souvenir needs.
