Special Exhibition: What’s Behind the U?

behind the USince the beginnings of Port Sunlight in 1888 to today’s global company, Unilever make some of the world’s most popular brands.  This special exhibition, in partnership with Unilever’s Archives and Records Management team, uncovers the amazing innovations and fascinating stories behind Unilever’s many products and lets you discover what is made behind the Port Sunlight factory wall.

Worker’s Cottage – Our new worker’s cottage experience allows visitors to explore an original home in the village portrayed as it may have looked when first built in 1913.  Visiting the cottage is included in your museum admission.  The cottage has slightly shorter opening hours than our main museum displays but is still open daily from 11am-4pm.
