Why should I visit the Port Sunlight Museum in Merseyside?

Visiting the Port Sunlight Museum means experiencing the story of William Lever and his vision in creating the village of Port Sunlight for workers at his Sunlight Soap factory!

The museum is packed with tales and nostalgia, from displays of vintage soap packaging to Ringo Starr’s first performance with the Beatles in the village in 1962. Through film shows, interactives, models and an array of different unique artefacts, visitors of the museum can discover the tale of this inspirational village!

As a part of the Port Sunlight Experience ticket, visitors will get a chance to step into the worker’s cottage and experience everyday life in Port Sunlight’s Edwardian times. Guests can also explore the recreated home of the Carr Family, who were long term tenants and worked in the Lever Brothers factory. The historic cottage, Number 22, is right next to the museum and visitors will revive a warm welcome from the dedicated team of volunteers at the museum!
