The Maritime History department is currently unable to answer public enquiries due to project commitments. If you have any questions relating to objects in the museum such as paintings and ship models, we will resume this service in May 2020. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

If you have an enquiry about Liverpool's maritime past or general maritime history you may find it useful to have a look at the Maritime Archives and Library information sheets, which are available online.
