Description

The museum, located on Liverpool’s Albert Docks, is close to the dry docks where 18th-century slave trading ships were repaired and fitted out. According to the museum’s director, David Fleming:

“Our vision is to create a major new International Slavery Museum to promote the understanding of transatlantic slavery and its enduring impact. Our aim is to address ignorance and misunderstanding by looking at the deep and permanent impact of slavery and the slave trade on Africa, South America, the USA, the Caribbean, and Western Europe. Thus we will increase our understanding of the world around us."
