Excellent displays and well worth a visit and with free entry to the museum it's a day out for all the family the tall ship at the back if the museum is a bit costly though

First of all its hard to be to harsh because at end of day it's free.anyone other city it wouldn't be.
Lovely location and tall ship behind is fantastic and also free to go on.
Downside it's not anywhere near as good as previous sight simply because it's to small.having the cars and motorbikes up so high is pointless because you cannot see them..
Spotlessly clean and nice staff.the old street and underground trains are fab as is the old shops you can go in.upstairs cafe a let down.but no doubt it is highly worth a visit as very interesting

Every type and form of transport you could imagine is housed in this museum. There is so much to do and see and our three kids loved it. We stopped off in the restaurant for lunch. There’s a kids menu available which was good value and went down very well.
There is a tall ship, the Glenlee, outside that can also be explored. The tall ship and transport museum are both free

One of the best museums I have been too! Great location, cheap parking. The exhibits are touchable. Take small children along and don’t worry about them being fed up there is so much to do and see! The cafe is gorgeous and the gift shop is very reasonable.

Nice to visit for a day out, loved the re-creation of the old cobbled street and shops you could wander in and out. Its a bit remote - I,e not much else within a short waling distance for families, however, there is a café. but a short journey in a taxi to the west end where there are plenty of fab places to eat and visit
