An Insight into a dark chapter of the human story May 31, 2014
I was very moved by what i seen at the museum, it really give me an insight as to how slaves were treated and they were transferred between people like cattle, it goes through the generations of were they were taken from and where they where taken to, the were families separated never to be reunited in some cases. After i came out of here i could not believe more people had not been as i thought. Its definitely worth a day out especially as its free although i would recommend leaving a donation as they are always looking to expand with more artifacts and stories.

Great insight Sep 01, 2011
The International Slavery Museum is very near to Tate Liverpool, and just above the Maritime Museum. The exhibitions focused on slavery, most notably on Africa. I didn’t realise how many European countries scrambled to divide and conquer Africa for themselves. The museum shows insight into this, as well as the artefacts that relate to traditional African cultures. At the time of visiting, they had an excellent exhibition on the photos from the apartheid era of South Africa. This was a well organised and moving exhibition, and gave you a real sense of what the period was like without being too depressing. Overall, this museum was well organised and a joy to go to.
