Description

In the year 1908 when work began on the Liver Buildings, the City of Liverpool was at the peak of its power.


The city bristled with imposing civil monuments, gleaming office blocks and a seven mile swathe of docks. The Liver Birds looked down on Britain’s greatest port and the maritime heart of the largest empire the world had ever seen.


This was no mere provincial Lancastrian town, not even just a British city. This was Liverpool, the most innovative, ambitious and diverse place in the world. Liverpool was the first truly global city. This tour will take in two museums the Museum of Liverpool and the Maritime & Slavery Museum (combined) as well as the brand new 360 Liver Buildings Tower Tour. (Please note that museums might be visited in a different order according to local conditions).


During your tour you will discover the story of Liverpool through the amazing collections, spanning more than 10,000 years of Merseyside's history. Areas include social and community history, archaeology, the King's Regiment and transport.


Merseyside Maritime Museum

Merseyside Maritime Museum is in the Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool. It contains a variety of objects associated with the social and commercial history of the port of Liverpool. Highlights include ship models, maritime paintings, colourful posters from the golden age of liners and even some full sized vessels.


During the visit you will have the opportunity to enter the world of the Customs officer - a dark and unseen world of smuggling, intrigue and danger, where things are not always what they seem.

A permanent exhibition explores Liverpool's central role in the Titanic story.


Although she never visited Liverpool, Titanic had strong links with her home port. Titanic's managing company, the White Star Line, had its head office in James Street, Liverpool. White Star's main New York service sailed from Liverpool until 1907, when it was transferred to Southampton. This was partly due to the competition of the new Cunard liners Lusitania and Mauretania, both sailing from Liverpool from that year. 


The International Slavery Museum

The International Slavery Museum increases the understanding of transatlantic, chattel and other forms of enslavement. Through our collections, public engagement and research, we explore their impact and legacies.
