Unlock the wonders of our waterways...
With its delightful waterside setting, flotillas of historic boats and fascinating displays housed in fine Victorian buildings, the Museum is a great day out whatever the weather.
Visitors can take a boat trip through an industrial landscape, soak up fascinating canal history, explore traditional narrow boats and homes through the ages, complete with cottage gardens.
Its stunning location beside the Mersey and the Manchester Ship Canal makes the museum well-placed to show how the waterways helped drive the UK's astonishing industrial revolution.
