The museum of Liverpool
The Museum of Liverpool is housed in a new purpose-built building at the Pier Head in
this famous city. With 8,000 square metres of exhibition space there is room for more than 6,000 objects.
In a city rich with the struggles of working people then it's perhaps no great surprise that some of the objects on display recall some momentous events including the Liverpool Dockers heroic struggle in the 1990s.
Visitors will be able to find Trade Union & Labour history objects through out the museum, in particular on the second floor in the People’s Republic gallery (Working & Health section) and the Wondrous Place gallery (Writing Liverpool exhibition), as well as in the Great Port Gallery on the ground floor.
The Museum won the Council of Europe Museum Prize for 2013. The Museum opens everyday 10am -5pm and entry is free. For more details go to www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk
