Museums Liverpool has one of the most impressive collections of museums in Europe. Opened in 2011 in a landmark waterfront building, the Museum of Liverpool is the UK’s first museum dedicated to the history of a city. Visitors can explore how Liverpool’s port, its people and its creative, industrial and sporting history have shaped the city. Many museums and galleries are located around the Albert Dock, such as the Merseyside Maritime Museum and International Slavery Museum, where you can find out all about the companies, people and ships connected to this port city. St George’s Quarter, close to Lime Street station, is home to World Museum, where you can discover treasures from around the world, meet live creatures and explore outer space.
