Although the museum is fascinating they charge extra for a map of the site which I think should be included in the price. Also the coffee shop was closed which was a real let down especially at 1 o’clock on a Thursday afternoon.

Make sure that you take time out to watch the very interesting film (about 15 mins long) based on the life of the founders - the Levers. Plenty to see and educate yourself on the life and principles of this amazing man.

We had really intended visiting the Lady Lever Gallery, but were tempted in here instead. So glad we were. This is, quite simply, one of the best little museums I've been to. For around £10, you get admission for two adults, including a walking map...More
