Merseyside Maritime Museum

Merseyside Maritime Museum is in the Albert Dock, Liverpool.

It contains many fascinating archives, objects and paintings relating to Liverpool's role in the American Civil War; the last Confederate surrender occurred in Liverpool on 6 November 1865, when the Confederate warship 'CSS Shenandoah' surrendered at the Pier Head, Liverpool. During 1864-1865 the 'Shenandoah' had captured, sunk or bonded 38 Union merchant vessels, mostly Union whaling ships, and was also responsible for firing the last shot of the American Civil War at a whaler off the Aleutian Islands in June 1865.

The Museum also houses the International Slavery Museum (on the third floor).
