Maritime Museum

Liverpool Maritime Museum

The Merseyside Maritime Museum tells the story of the Port Of Liverpool, and its role in world history.

On the first floor is a collection telling the stories of three of the most famous and most tragic ships in history – the Titanic, Lusitania and Empress of Ireland. Each had strong links with Liverpool and its people.

Seized! The Border and Customs uncovered is an exhibition of the unseen world of smuggling, intrigue and detection and the work of the UK border agency.
