Only the ground floor of the Museum of Liverpool will be open on Sunday 24 and Monday 25 May. Due to the pressure of numbers expected at the waterfront to see the Three Cunard Queens on these two days, the Museum has to limit access for safety reasons.
Opening hours & admission
Open daily, from 10am to 5 pm.
Closed from 2pm on 24 December and all day 25 and 26 December and 1 January.
Entry to the museum and all of the events and exhibitions is free.
The Little Liverpool gallery for families with children under six is free but has a limited capacity. Entry is by a timed ticket, pick yours up from the welcome desk on the ground floor on the day of your visit.
All free films in the Theatre on the ground floor are shown at regular intervals throughout the day. No ticket required.

Tips for your visit
Thursday is the quietest day at the Museum of Liverpool, followed by Friday.
Avoid visiting the museum on the busiest day of the week - Saturday. Sunday is often crowded as well, but if you don’t have choice but going to the museum during the weekend, choose Sunday: it is always slightly less crowded than on Saturday.
Crowds won’t be a problem in winter (the calmest time at Museum of Liverpool), in March or September. They may however spoil your visit in August (the busiest month of the year) or in July (quite busy as well).
On foot: The Museum is on the waterfront close to Liverpool city centre.
By train: James Street station (2-3 minutes walk away from the Museum), Liverpool Central station (about 15 to 20 minutes walk away), Liverpool Lime Street station (20 minute walk).
By bus: Paradise Street bus station is the closest one to the Museum.
By ferry: the Mersey Ferries terminal is right next to the museum at the Pier Head.
By bicycle: there are lots of bicycle bays opposite the entrance to the museum, by the Great Western Railway building.
By car: the nearest car parks are located in the Liverpool One complex opposite the entrance to the Albert Dock.
