I first visited the newly finished Museum of Liverpool with my wife shortly after it opened and thought it was spectacular though my viewing of the exhibitions was limited due to the swarms of kids that had invaded the whole building (it was a sunny weekend). I returned last month for a solo visit and went in the morning during a school day and this visit was in blissful contrast to the first attempt. The space is well used and the variety of ways the information is presented makes it accessible to all. The lifts are spacious and well placed which is fortunate as the sweeping staircases are not for the faint-hearted or weak-kneed. It is a lively look into the past and present of a city with a colourful story to tell. The view from the museum's vast windows is worth a visit in itself. The cafe on the ground floor is a little cramped but accessible and the prices are reasonable for a museum. I can recommend the fudge cake! If you are on a visit to Liverpool this should be your first stop!
