World Museum

Liverpool, England
4.7 / 88
Natural science museum dedicated to the biological, archaeological, ethnological and physical history of our planet. The collection began to be collected in 1851, many exhibits are so unique that they have no analogues in other museums in the world. The library is located in the same building. Initially, the book collection occupied a separate room, but after 1860 it was housed in the monumental museum building.
Address:William Brown Street, Liverpool

Very nice museum, walking distance from Lime Street railway station. Extra like: they have a little wildflower meadow to help pollinators. The planetarium wasn't open due to a technical problem, but the rest was great. Each storey has a differ.. Read more »

This museum is free to enter, so please donate a little something when you are inside. 4 floors of exhibits , which are always changing, from space exploration to ancient Egypt. We'll worth a visit to pass a few hours away. Several exhibitions .. Read more »

Worth a visit if you haven't been before, but beware the warm claustrophobic overcrowding of families on holidays and weekends! Multiple tiered building, so you can either take the lift (which would most likely be packed) or the hundreds of stai.. Read more »

Amazing, we paid for the planetarium which was awesome (maybe too relaxing🤣) we paid to see the war of the gods exhibition too, but that was far too much money for the 20 minutes it took to wall around, it really wasn't worth the 16 for 2 adults.. Read more »

Great museum. Exhibitions are over 5 floors and Still operating a one way system up and down the stairs (or may be they just hadn't removed the stickers) but it flowed well. I only saw one lift and there were queues on every floor. Exhibitions w.. Read more »

Great museum, free entrance, kids and adults really enjoyed every floor. The only issue was the lift, it wasn't just being used for those that were unable to use the stairs which then meant those who had to use the lifts were waiting quite a whi.. Read more »

Beautiful building and free to enter, although donations are appreciated. Fun little aquarium and the eygytian exhibition was amazing. A bit thin on the "dinosaur" section as its more of a generic 'animals of the earth' section bu.. Read more »

This museum is amazing. You could easily spend a whole day here. I would mark a star down for the lift situation but that's down to people not having common sense and courtesy for those with wheelchairs/buggies etc. We waited a while for the lif.. Read more »

I enjoyed this place more than I thought I would. Yes it’s far too kid-friendly for me. But the Egyptian exhibit is great and was of keen interest, having been to Egypt myself earlier this year. The exhibit on Benin is also quite interesting bu.. Read more »

Very informative but great place. Nice and big and something for everyone. Sealife area I felt could have been bigger and with more animals, but it is free to go so I can't complain. They went to a lot of effort with the decorations which was lo.. Read more »

Place is easy to navigate and I'd say you can look around everything in about an hour and a half /2 hours. But could probably spend alot longer here, daughter enjoyed herself.

Always love to visit here. Came this time with my teenage children whilst my youngest was at school. This meant we had more time to look around and appreciate the artifacts on show. It's a shame all the interactive parts were closed due to Covid.. Read more »

So many hand stations absolutely fantastic place a must if you haven't already very covid aware
Ida Latifa
The collection in the museum is very breathtaking, especially the Egypt collection and their mummies. Some floors don't really have a good collection like in the first floor. Some are closed due to covid. The guide is also helpful.
Good variation of free exhibitions. Very covid secure

Difficult to enjoy while wearing a face nappy.

This is my favourite museum, so many floors and they change exhibits quite often so there's always something interesting to see even if you're a frequent visitor!
This is really good, general museum with loads to see from different parts of the world as well as different land and sea animals and their history (dinosaurs). The museum has done really well with one way systems and limiting exhibits in the virus t.. Read more »
