I paid a visit to the International Slavery Museum which is housed on the 3rd floor of the Merseyside Maritime Museum. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about this emotive and dark chapter in human history and Liverpool's involvement of the slave trade such as being once the capital of the transatlanitc slave trade.

The musuem is split up the following galleries: Life in West Africa, Enslavement and the Middle Passage and Legacies of Slavery and the Campaign Zone. These galleries explore the reasons, address the issues that rose from the slave trade and slavery and what one can learn from it today.

Address: Inside the Merseyside Maritime Museum, Albert Dock
Directions: Albert Docks and near Strand Street.
