In 2005, a new central entrance hall and a six-story atrium were added to World Museum. After you pass through this grand atrium, you'll find galleries filled with archaeological, ethnological, and scientific artifacts. Inside, the World Cultures gallery allows you to explore the world without leaving Liverpool. If strange creatures are your passion, then check out the Bug House. Admission to the attraction, and the in-house planetarium, is free. Klarna Trips's itinerary builder makes planning a Liverpool trip simple and quick.

What a great museum! I visited here on my own on 13th jan 2023. First time visiting. The museum is huge. Lots to look at, lots to read. I spent 1.5 hours in there but could have spent much longer...

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 lifts as we wanted to start at level 5 and work the way down. We had a wheelchair so the stairs weren't an option but other people in the queue for the lift could've had more consideration. There's an amazing cafe on the ground floor which has amazing fresh made produce and meals. All of the staff in there were super friendly aswell. They had a monster making event on the top floor when we visited made from soft dough which hardened. Again this was free. The mummy room and Ancient Egyptian floor is second to none. My daughter is very much interested in this and has wanted to visit a museum but this blew her mind. They also offer a quiet space should you need to pray whilst at the museum which is absolutely brilliant. This was a fabulous way to spend a day during half term.
*free* entry apart from the doctor who area , though everything else was really interesting! multiple floors with different types of topics like dinosaurs, space, and even a aquarium! there is a gift shop and cafe on the left side of the museum, and the stairs and elevators are on the right. lots of toilets; some can be found of the floors. there are also real taxidermy, bugs and mummies. very good place to spend time at!
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 but I didn’t have time to read through it all. Would definitely recommend a visit especially as it’s free.
So half term week visit for us ( Thursday ) Nice greeting from the staff when we entered which was nice. Very busy but to be expected as it was the school holidays. Lost of exhibits here for you to explore and look at which was great! Well signed and instructions on what way to walk. Me and my daughter loved it. No issues at all! Well done folks!
Excellent family day out. Most expense was the near by car park. The museum is free to enter with donation boxes around. 5 floors of great artifacts and historic items as well as much more with a cafe on site and gift store. Toilets on most floors and lifts so easily accessible for all.
