International Slavery Museum

This unique and thought-provoking museum explores the history of the slave trade and Liverpool’s involvement, while addressing issues such as freedom, identity, human rights, racial discrimination and cultural change.

Features of the museum include a walk-in audio-visual display, using film to re-create the appalling conditions on slave ships in the Middle Passage, a black achievers wall and a ‘music desk’ allowing visitors to listen to tracks from a variety of different musical genres.

This is the only museum of its kind in the UK and will take you on a journey that will give you greater awareness and understanding of both historical and contemporary slavery.
