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 will mark 10 years on 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 John Lennon and Paul McCartney first met, immerse yourself in the city’s rich sporting and creative history and experience for yourself what it means to be Liverpudlian. Don’t miss the 360º immersive films about Liverpool and Everton FC and The Beatles!

Exhibits showcase popular culture and tackle social, historical and contemporary issues of Liverpool’s region in an accessible, engaging manner.

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 first Ford Anglia from Ford’s Halewood production line and Chris Boardman’s famous Lotus sport bike. Book a place in Little Liverpool and introduce your youngest children to the wonders of the Museum of Liverpool.

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 s 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 definitely worth a stop off.

The café on the ground floor serves delicious traditional British food with a contemporary twist. Here, you can relax and enjoy excellent views of the canal and Albert Dock. Free Wifi is also available here.
