International Slavery Museum

International Slavery MuseumThe International Slavery Museum tells the story of enslaved people through three galleries.

‘Life in West Africa’ explores the story of Africa and its peoples, who are central to the story of transatlantic slavery which was such a part of Liverpool’s trade.

‘Enslavement and the Middle Passage’ reveals some of the brutality and trauma suffered by enslaved Africans on the voyage across the Atlantic; then the oppression of their lives on plantations in the Americas.

‘Legacies of slavery’details the continuing fight for freedom and equality; the contemporary impact of transatlantic slavery, such as racism and discrimination; and the achievements of the African Diaspora.

The International Slavery Museum is open every day (except 25th 26th Dec and 1st Jan) from 10am until 5pm and its free to visit.
