Port Sunlight Museum welcomes groups

Open daily 10.00am – 5.00pm

Port Sunlight Museum welcomes groups of all sizes with the best way of getting the most out of a visit to Port Sunlight

Museum & Garden Village by booking your group into the museum to browse at their leisure around the exhibition, followed

by a guided tour with a qualified Port Sunlight Guide who board’s your vehicle (this would be your own vehicle). The guide

will escort you around this unique and beautiful 19th century garden village pointing out village facts and explaining what

life was like, living in the village.

Depending on time-scales you may wish to visit the museum only? Although if time allows then the duel combination of

museum & guided tour may suit your group’s needs better? The choice is yours, we look forward to answering any questions regarding your booking arrangements.
