Tips for your visit

Saturday is the busiest day of the week at Merseyside Maritime Museum, choose another day if possible for your visit. We recommend going on a Thursday or Friday, as those tend to be the calmest weekdays.

Tuesday is generally quite busy compared to other weekdays, avoid it if possible.

August is the peak month at the Museum, better to avoid! June is the quietest of the summer months. Visit in winter to avoid crowds, it’s when Merseyside is at its calmest. Otherwise, choose September - it tends to be quite as well.

April, July and October are not as busy as August, but you’d better avoid these months too: the visitors’ numbers are still quite high.
