This is a very interesting museum, full of interesting information about the history of Port Sunlight and Lord Leverhulme. I liked the variety of exhibits, including some old artifacts. There are interactive things for children. This museum is well worth the modest entry fee.
Interesting, however I was slightly disappointed after the gallery, if you don't watch the video you would wondering why they charge so much for very little displays. All that said it does complete your day out.

First time visiting port sunlight and it won't be the last. A pleasant stroll around the village looking at buildings and gardens, followed by a visit to the museum. Not the biggest museum but an interesting place to visit. Nice coffee and cake in the cafe.
This gives the history of both Sunlight Soap and how the \lever Brothers built up the business and provided homes for their workers. I certainly would love to live there!
The selection of art was wonderful and it largely came from one collection. Loved the Pre-Raphaelite art and the guided tour which was free gave a good insight into Lord Lever. The man was good to his workers in an outstanding manner.
