The museum is dedicated to the history of Liverpool and houses a collection of more than 6,000 objects, divided into five sections: Social and community history, City soldiers (dedicated to military history), Land transport (a collection of various vehicles), Archaeology of the Merseyside and a collection of paintings related to Liverpool’s history. Through objects belonging to the museum collections and special exhibitions, the museum galleries present various aspects of the long history of the city from the Neolithic age to the Industrial revolution up to the present day.

At the museum, temporary exhibition and event spaces, learning rooms, a theatre, a meeting center, a cafe, an indoor picnic area, and a shop are available to visitors.
