I like visiting museums so every time we are in a new city I explore what kind of museums are there and what would I like to see.
In Liverpool you have really a lot of museums and most of them are free to visit – no entrance fee at all. 🙂
Our second day there we spent the whole day in the museums.
There are 4 museums at the Albert Dock.
First, we visited the Merseyside Maritime Museum.
There you can see lots of boats, 70 of them full size and the model of the Titanic and Lusitania.
Also a lot of paintings and photograph regarding the Battle of Atlantic in WW2.
There is also a Tate museum – a museum of modern arts.
I’m not really a fan of modern arts, but we decided to take a look.
Tate Liverpool is the home of the National Collection of Modern Art.
The museum has 4 floors and a lot of paintings, sculptures and installations.
Still not my thing – in all of modern art museums I usually find maybe 2 things that I like.
Then we went to the museum of Liverpool – the museum is in an interesting building by the River Mersey.
There you can see how it was growing up in Liverpool, Liverpool Overhead Railway, King’s Regiment collection, regional archaeology collection and also a range of Beatles related material.
A really good museum.
Our last museum for the day was the World Museum. This museum is located in William Brown Street.
It’s in a beautiful neoclassical building. Also a very good museum where you can see the Roman sculpture collection, Ancient Egypt collection, Zoology collection, Botany, Geology and much more.
These four museums were all for free. We also visited some museum with an entry fee, but about them some other time.
