The Museum of Liverpool, located within its namesake city, was built in 2011 to replace the aged Museum of Liverpool Life. The museum aims to display the contributions of the city’s inhabitants to English culture and the advancement of British industry. The centre often lets out sections of its space to a multitude of exhibitions each month, showcasing national art and design.
THE CORE THEME
The majority of the museum’s space is divided into four main themes: The Great Port, People’s Republic, Wondrous Place, and Global City are all separate galleries spread across two extensive floors. The ground floor is home to displays that review the city’s technological revolution across the ages, its input to the Industrial Revolution as a whole, and the impacts that they have had upon the city’s economical progress. The upper floor presents Liverpool’s social identity throughout history, showing records ranging from Neolithic times up until the modern day about the different cultures and peoples that have contributed to the present city’s diversity.
The Museum of Liverpool is part of the National Museums Liverpool group, and pulls resources from the entire chain of museums, bringing them all together in one place. Exhibitions feature compilations of items such as costumes, decorative art, botanical and entomological collections, as well as photographic libraries and archeological archives. The museum also features a gallery called Little Liverpool, a showplace for young children in which they can interact with displays that teach them about city life.
Liverpool Love had its inaugural exhibition in 2012 at the Museum of Liverpool, and invited guest celebrities including Yoko Ono, Noel Fielding, and Sir Peter Blake to celebrate the city’s history. It featured unique contemporary art as part of the Liverpool Contemporary Art Fair, and was exceedingly well-received.
