Take the train to Liverpool… and catch the UK’s newest museum
The new Museum of Liverpool has just opened. Read on and find out why it’s worth taking the train to the city that’s famous for footballers, music and more…
Liverpool’s famously the sporting ground of footballers and their WAGS, not to mention the birthplace of the fab four. But there’s a new attraction just opened by the city’s historic waterfront – The Museum of Liverpool, and it’s set to have leisure travellers taking trains to Liverpool in their droves.
Opening today, the new Museum of Liverpool cost £72 million and is Blighty’s largest new national museum, so there’s sure to be something inside for culture vultures of all ages and interests.
Exhibits are set to include the original stage Paul McCartney and John Lennon met on, as well as football displays, historical items from Liverpool’s past as a worldwide industrial power and 18 foot replicas of the Liver Building’s bird statues.
David Fleming, director of the National Museums Liverpool, told The Independent that the Museum will tell the story of Liverpool and help explain the city’s personality and history to visitors and locals alike.
“The Museum of Liverpool,” he said, “is all about telling the stories of the city and its people.”
And as the Museum’s a stone’s throw from Liverpool’s James Street Rail Station and a twenty minute walk from Liverpool’s Lime Street Station, it’s easy to check out Liverpool’s latest cultural offering by train.
Visitors to Liverpool might want to make sure they have enough time to check out the rest of Liverpool too, as the city’s Echo arena, football grounds, boutique shopping districts and trendy Albert Docks are just as easy reached too.
