Merseyside Maritime Museum's extensive collection of ship models is one of the most significant in the country and contains more than 2000 models, mostly merchant vessels - from steamships to sailing ships, builders models to ships in bottles.

The Dashwood-Howard collection of ships in bottles is of particular note.
