The World Museum Liverpool has a variety of galleries for every interest – whether it be world cultures, insects of all kinds, fish or general natural history such as plants, minerals and rocks. Here you can learn more about the continents through the relics discovered from Africa, North and South America, Asia and Oceania. Ethnological and archaeological discoveries of note are housed in the Weston Discovery Centre, which has interactive exhibitions for all the family. If ethnomusicology is more your thing, get yourself to the Treasure House Theatre, where dance and music are performed and classes are held on global music styles. A café is also available, as well as an innovative fair-trade shop.
Fans of The Beatles cannot possibly miss The Beatles Story. This is an interactive exhibition space at two locations – Albert Dock and Mersey Ferries Terminal – which tells the story of the band from its humble beginnings to international acclaim and legendary status. The subsequent solo careers of the individual band members are also explored in detail in separate exhibits. After all that exploration, catch some refreshment at the themed Starbucks café and get yourself some memorabilia at the Fab4Store!
The Museum of Liverpool has a claim to fame which is all its own – it is unique in that it is dedicating to telling the story of Liverpool. It is also the biggest English museum built in the last 100 years, containing over 6000 exhibits spread over several galleries. It successfully mixes the past and the present, combining contemporary topics with popular culture, history and societal issues. Little Liverpool is a separate gallery for the kids that will ensure they do not feel left out and will also learn something about this great city. The education does not stop when you grab a bite to eat, as you can sample typical English fare in the café downstairs.
The Walker Art Gallery has a huge collection of fine, decorative and contemporary art, ranging from paintings to sculptures spanning more than six centuries. Rembrandt, Turner – they are all here. A unique aspect to the Gallery is Ben Johnson’s Liverpool Cityscape, which shows Liverpool as it has developed and grown over the years. In spring and summer of 2012 the temporary exhibition, ‘A Collector’s Eye: Cranach to Pissarro’ will be on display, while in autumn it will be the turn of ‘Art in Revolution: Liverpool 1911′. For the under 8s, there is a dedicated kids’ gallery titled Big Art for Little Artists, which introduces children to art at a young age and encourages a life long enthusiasm.
