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. The museum is located on Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage Site waterfront and represents Liverpool’s unique and interesting history.

Hop on board the overhead railway, immerse yourself in the city’s rich sporting and creative history and experience for yourself what it means to be Liverpudlian.

The museum is child friendly with lot of interactives that bring history to life and an engaging programme of activities for young people to play and learn. Book a free place in Little Liverpool to introduce your youngest children to the wonders of the Museum of Liverpool.

The museum also houses changing exhibits; don’t miss Double Fantasy – John & Yoko a free ground-breaking exhibition telling John Lennon and Yoko Ono's story in their own words. The exhibition explores the personal and creative chemistry of this iconic couple and their ongoing Imagine Peace campaign.

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 Liver bird, the first Ford Anglia from Ford’s Halewood production line and the famous 'Lion' locomotive.

Head to the People’s Republic gallery 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.
