Learn about the brutal history of the transatlantic slave trade and its modern incarnations at the International Slavery Museum. Get a glimpse into the lives of African slaves and learn how decades after its abolition, slavery continues today in different forms.
The International Slavery Museum opened in 2007 with the objective of opening people’s eyes to the impact of the slave trade both historically and in the modern world. Situated in Albert Dock, the museum is located beside the dry dock where 18th century slave ships were refitted and repaired.
Three separate sections offer you an insight into the life of a slave. Start your tour in a village in West-Africa to see how people became enslaved. Learn about their harrowing voyages across the Atlantic to work on plantations in the Americas. Hear stories of cruelty and bravery as slaves fought for their freedom across the world over a period of hundreds of years.
Visit the Legacy Gallery to see the Black Achievers Wall and learn about those who worked to bring about the end of slavery, through art, culture and politics. A changing program of exhibitions focusing on the lasting effects of slavery across the world runs throughout the year. Here you can also explore Liverpool’s role in the slave trade and the way it contributed to the city.
Finally, head to the Campaign Zone Gallery, which features exhibits highlighting contemporary forms of slavery. Although often confronting, these exhibits aim to inform visitors about the struggle against modern day oppression and exploitation.
