The Merseyside Maritime Museum in Liverpool is more than just a museum. It is also a treasure house of architectural and mechanical invention which was founded in 1862 with the gift of a ship model to the Mayer Museum, the forerunner of Liverpool Museum.

Since its opening, the museum has amassed a large number of treasures related to seafaring, sea travel and the port of Liverpool. The museum now comprises Warehouse block D in which the permanent and temporary exhibitions are held, the Canning graving docks, historic cargo handling equipment at the Piermaster's House and ships in Canning Half-Tide Dock.

What’s more, you can take a peak at The Maritime Archives and Library at Merseyside Maritime Museum which houses an extensive collection of maritime books and documents spanning three centuries.
