Port Sunlight Museum


Port Sunlight Museum tells the story of William Lever and his vision in creating this village for workers at his Sunlight Soap factory. The displays explore how the village developed, from the working conditions to the charming architecture and lively social scene. The museum is packed with nostalgia, from vintage soap packaging to the story Ringo Starr’s first performance with the Beatles, which took place in Port Sunlight in 1962. Through film shows, interactives, models and an array of intriguing artefacts you can discover the tale of this inspirational village. “Selling Sunlight” is the new special exhibition from 24th March 2018 exploring how William Lever made his soap company into a worldwide brand. From innovative advertisements, eye-catching shop displays and novelty gifts to encourage brand loyalty from a young age, Lever Brothers’ products became household names. Discover how Port Sunlight village itself was tied into the brand image and enjoy nostalgic displays of vintage packaging and a recreated grocers shop.


The Wirral Peninsula has a lot to offer tourists both young and old. One of those attractions that does have a large part to play in that statement is Port Sunlight’s Museum & Garden Village, created by William Hesketh Lever for his Sunlight soap factory workers in 1888. Across Britain there are many villages like this, and all have stood the test of time very well, none more so than here at Port Sunlight. This leafy village is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all the gardeners and village residents through the years. This legacy is now being carried out by an independent charitable trust that if you ask me, is doing a wonderful job of keeping this special village special for its future residents and visitors. A visit to the museum and village is an absolute must!
