Merseyside Maritime Museum is in the Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool. It contains a variety of objects associated with the social and commercial history of the port of Liverpool. Highlights include ship models, maritime paintings, colourful posters from the golden age of liners and even some full sized vessels. There is also the major exhibition Titanic and Liverpool: the untold story, which tells the story of Liverpool's links to the ill-fated liner. The Museum also houses the International Slavery Museum (on the third floor) as well as the Border Force's national museum: Seized! The Border and Customs uncovered (in the basement).
