Tour Locations | Liverpool History and Culture: From the Past to the Present
Museum of Liverpool
You should now be standing outside the Museum of Liverpool, an ideal place in which to conclude our tour. The museum tells the story of Liverpool's social, political and cultural history. Displays are divided into four main themes: The Great Port, Global City, People’s Republic, and Wondrous Place, located in four large gallery spaces. On the ground floor, displays look at the city's urban and technological evolution, including the Industrial Revolution and the changes in the British Empire, and how these changes have impacted the city's economic development. The upper floor looks at Liverpool's particular and strong identity through examining the social history of the city, from settlement in the area from Neolithic times to the present day, migration, and the various communities and cultures which contribute to the city's diversity.
The Museum also features: Little Liverpool, a gallery for children under six; History Detectives, an interactive archaeology and history resource centre; a 180-seat theatre for community and audio-visual performances and meeting facilities. It also has a gallery called City Soldiers. Like most museums and galleries in the city, entrance is free.
If you are facing the entrance to the museum look to your left where you will see the giant red edifice that is the Albert dock. There are more galleries and museums here plus many welcoming cafes and bars to eat and drink.
