About

The Museum of Liverpool is the world’s first national museum devoted to the history of a regional city and the largest newly-built national museum in Britain for more than a century. In 2018, it marked 10 years on Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Site waterfront and 10 years of representing Liverpool’s unique and interesting history.

Enjoy accessible and engaging exhibits showcasing Liverpool’s popular culture, hop on board the overhead railway and discover social, historical and contemporary issues associated with the city region.

More than 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, a life-size Liverbird, the King’s Regiment archive, local archaeology collection and fascinating large objects in the Land Transport collection. Book a place in Little Liverpool and introduce your youngest children to the wonders of the Museum of Liverpool and check out the latest temporary exhibitions.

Head to the skylight galleries for an unmissable sweeping view of the Three Graces - this window actually won ‘Best window with a view’ - so is definitely worth a stop off.

      Some interesting exhibitions however it lacked some interactivity which I understand is due to covid. Would definitely recommend visiting once these restrictions have passed. Read full review

      Boss day out with family and friends. Super child friendly. Lovely exhibits, and don’t miss out on the chips in the cafe, add some Mayo to those baddies and you’ve found heaven on earth. A top spot. Read full review
