The museum is fairly small but well laid out. It's worth paying to visit the exhibition area and watching the 20 minute film. There's quite a bit about Lord Leverhulme himself and about Unilever and its well know products, as well as the history of the Village and the people who live(d) there. You can also see a 1913 worker's... More

Very interesting visit. A 'must' is the video presentation which sets the scene before you wander around the museum and visit the village. The village gives an insight to one mans care for the most important part of his business - the workers. He built this and ensured they had welfare and a happy life style with a modern policy...

We were staying in New Brighton so decided to visit Port Sunlight but due to a train strike we had to get there by bus. There are direct bus services from New Brighton so this didn't prove to be too difficult but we had a 10 minute walk to the museum and centre of the village. As it was a... More

Having spent the weekend in Southport with great weather we wanted to extend the weekend further and decided a trip to Port Sunlight was long overdue. We were not disappointed . Great exhibits in the Museum telling a story we didn't know much about. Living near Saltaire , Bradford, we though this was the only Model Village of its type... More

We decided to visit Port Sunlight as we have being going to Liverpool for 30 years and never visited. It's quite strange when you get off the train and start walking around the houses as it is so quiet. The architecture of the houses are remarkable and nearly all individual. William Lever who was just an amazing man started this... More
