Fodor's Review

In the same building as the Merseyside Maritime Museum, this museum's four dynamic galleries recount the history of transatlantic slavery and trace its significance in contemporary society. "Life in West Africa" reproduces a Nigerian Igbo compound; life aboard slave ships bound for the Americas is revealed in the "Enslavement and the Middle Passage" section; and "Legacies of Slavery" examines the effect of the African diaspora on contemporary society. The Campaign Zone hosts temporary exhibitions focusing on contemporary slavery issues such as human trafficking and child labor; visitors are encouraged to lobby politicians about these injustices.
