About the Museum
Discover Liverpool’s unique contribution to the world at the Museum of Liverpool. Thousands of objects chart Liverpool’s history from its beginnings as a small fishing village, to its rise as one of the world’s most important ports. Liverpool’s fortunes have risen and fallen throughout the course of history, bringing us to its current status as a world-renowned cultural leader and tourist destination. The Museum of Liverpool has been at the forefront of this resurgence, capturing the city’s journey under one roof, with absorbing stories, exhibits and displays that showcase the people and places that have shaped its history, while tackling social, historical and contemporary issues. The prestigious Council of Europe Museum Prize for 2013 was awarded to the Museum for its commitment to human rights as well as its work with children and families from all backgrounds.
