Merseyside Maritime Museum, Liverpool: 28 reviews and 49 photos
Nine million emigrants left Liverpool between 1830 and 1930 for new lifes in the USA or Australia. The maritime museum at Albert Dock tells there stories and it really is a nice place to spend a rainy day!
Apart from these emigrant stories in the basement which were my favourite part of the exhibition you will find out more about Liverpool owned Titanic and other steamers of White Star Line here. There's a huge section on WWII and there's an exhibition on slavery as well.
Outside the museum there's some exhibits which you can see without going into the museum, e.g. the Lusitania's propeller.
The Lusitania was a luxury steamship owned by Liverpool based Cunard Steamship Company. It sank 11 miles off the Irish coast in 1915 when it was hit by a torpedo from German submarine U-20. The Lusitania was apparently listed as Armed Merchant Cruiser. It sank within 18 minutes, 1201 people died.
As most other museums in Liverpool the Maritime Museum is free.
Address: The Colonnades, Albert Dock
