I visited the new Museum of Liverpool on Sunday which was only 6 days after it opened. It's good to be finally able to go inside the concrete shell that has slowly been constructed at the Pier Head for the past few years.
Inside the impressive, distinct and modern building there are different "zones" such as Global City, Wondrous Place and The People's Republic which tell the story of Liverpool and its people. On either side of the building are two very large floor to ceiling windows - both provide panoramic views overlooking the Albert Dock and the Pier Head. On the day of my visit it was made better by the glourious sunshine and the fact that the cruise ship Crown Princess was docked at the Cuise Liner Terminal.
Several exhibits, such as the only surviving Overhead Railway carriage, are not due to open until later in the year. But with this sort of museum repeat visits are necessary. In fact, it isn't so much as a museum but more of an interactive experience which can be enjoyed by both adults and children.
It was so busy at 4pm on Sunday that there was lots that I didn't see so I'll definately be going back, especially as entry is free!
The new Museum of Liverpool is a welcome addition; in fact, combined with a trip on the Mersey Ferry and the attractions at the Albert Dock such as the Tate Gallery, Maritime Museum and Beatles Story, and the many cafes, bars and restaurants, you could spend the whole day down at the waterfont.
