Merseyside Maritime Museum Review

Part of the Albert Dock complex, this is a wonderful place to explore the role of the sea in the life of the city. The museum captures the triumphs and tragedies of Liverpool's seafaring history over five floors. Besides exhibits of maritime paintings, models, ceramics, and ships in bottles, the main museum brings to life the ill-fated stories of the Titanic and Lusitania, the Battle of the Atlantic, and the city's role during World War II. The basement is home to the Customs and Excise National Museum, which explores the heroes and villains of the world of smuggling, together with the story of mass emigration from the port in the 19th century. In summer full-size vessels are on display.
