Museum of Liverpool - Local Attractions
If you want to understand the charm of the City and see how its foundation's where formed then we recommend a visit to the Museum of Liverpool. From the Green Park Hotel its a 15 minute Bus ride to the Pier Head. This is a fantastic building and houses the history and culture of the City.
The Museum of Liverpool reflects the city's global significance through its unique geography, history and culture. Visitors can explore how the port, its people, their creative and sporting history have shaped the city.
The Museum of Liverpool is the largest newly-built national museum in the UK for over a hundred years. Beneath its stone cladding is a complex steel frame which allows large column-free spaces. This is perfect for creating flexible displays within the galleries.
The History of the Museum
The Museum of Liverpool builds on the success of the former Museum of Liverpool Life. This original award-winning museum was housed in the old Pilotage and Salvage Association buildings on Liverpool's waterfront, in between the Albert Dock and Pier Head. Its popular displays looked at the life, work and leisure activities of Liverpool people from all walks of life over the last 200 years.
The Museum of Liverpool Life opened in 1http://www.facebook.com/pages/Green-Park-Hotel-Liverpool/1709551929532813 and featured three main galleries; Making a Living, Demanding a Voice and Mersey Culture. In July 2000 the display space more than doubled when three new galleries were added as part of the Into the Future project; City Lives, City Soldiers and the River Room.
With these additions and a packed programme of temporary exhibitions the museum soon became one of National Museums Liverpool's most popular venues. In fact it was so busy that the Pilotage building, with its limited floor space, could no longer accommodate the more than 300,000 visits a year it was receiving. To solve this problem the old museum has been replaced with the larger purpose-built Museum of Liverpool.
After 13 fantastic years the Museum of Liverpool Life closed its doors to the public for the last time on Sunday 4 June 2006, to allow preparations for building work for the new museum to begin.
