The Museum of Liverpool is the world’s first national museum dedicated to the history of a regional city and the largest newly-built national museum in Britain for over a century. In 2018, it will mark 10 years in Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Site waterfront and 10 years of representing Liverpool’s unique and interesting history.
Hop on board the overhead railway, get up close to the stage where Paul McCartney and John Lennon first met, immerse yourself in the city’s rich sporting and creative history and experience for yourself what it means to be Liverpudlian.
Exhibits display popular culture and provide solution to social, historical and contemporary issues of Liverpool’s region in an accessible, engaging manner.
Over 6,000 objects bring Liverpool’s incredible heritage to life, celebrating thousands of years of the city’s achievements.
Exhibits include Ben Johnson’s Liverpool Cityscape, the first Ford Anglia from Ford’s Halewood production line, a life-size Liverbird and Chris Boardman’s famous Lotus sport bike. The museum also houses changing exhibits, examples include ‘Reel Stories’: that explores Liverpool’s history on the silver screen and ‘Growing up in the city’ which is a photographic exhibition exploring a childhood in Liverpool.
Head to the skylight galleries to see the sweeping views of the Three Graces – this window actually won ‘Best window with a view’ – so is certainly worth a stop off.
The café on the ground floor always serves delicious traditional British food with a contemporary twist. You can relax and enjoy excellent views of the canal and Albert Dock including free WiFi.
