Museum of Liverpool
The biggest newly built national museum in Britain, Museum of Liverpool is reflective of the city’s global importance through its distinct geography, history, and culture. It was opened in 2011 and replaced the former Museum of Liverpool Life started in 1993. The senior, award-winning museum housed in the Pilotage and Salvage Association buildings on the waterfront of Liverpool.The location was between the Albert Dock and Pier Head.
In the new Museum of Liverpool city centre, you can find out how the port of Liverpool, its people, and their musical history moulded the region. It is a place that curates the displays with life, work and leisure activities of inhabitants of Liverpool from different walks of life through more than past 200 years. The shows division is into four themes: The Great Port, Global City, People’s Republic, and Wondrous Place. The museum also has an exclusive gallery for children less than six years old and an interactive archaeology and history resource centre.
That is the best place for people who want to get a 360-degree view of life in the classy English city.
Merseyside Maritime Museum
Located at Albert Dock, Merseyside Maritime Museum lets you submerge yourself in the sea-faring heritage of Liverpool. It was opened in 1980 and expanded six years later, so the museum now occupies warehouse block D of the Albert Dock beside the Piermaster’s House, Canning Half Tide Dock, and Canning Graving Docks. The collections at this museum are reminiscent of Liverpool’s international significance including its role in the transatlantic slave trade that was a practice across the Atlantic Ocean between the 16th and 19th centuries. The displays at Merseyside Maritime Museum also include relics that reflect Liverpool port’s association with RMS Titanic – the British passenger liner that sank after colliding with an iceberg in North Atlantic Ocean in April 1912. The Port of Liverpool is where Titanic was registered.
This museum is another beautiful place to visit while at Liverpool with children who can enjoy the exhibitions, trails and free events organized regularly. And on the fourth floor of the building, you can relish in delicious platters with breathtaking views of the Albert Dock and waterfront. The Quayside Cafe on the ground floor serves lighter refreshments or finger foods. You can also shop for some nautically themed souvenirs at a shop here.
The International Slavery Museum and World Museum are other attractions for those interested in the historical or edifying side of the city. Liverpool cathedrals are also unique in their architecture and impress with their majestic beauty. Liverpool Anglican Cathedral that is the most significant cathedral of Great Britain and took 74 years to build ultimately has become an elegant attraction for visitors from all over the world. There are plenty of other attractions for enthusiastic travelers, and these include sports stadiums, parks, beaches, movie halls, theatres, and nightclubs.
