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. Find out more about the galleries and displays inside in the Your visit section.

The museum opened on 19 July 2011 in a purpose-built landmark building on Liverpool's famous waterfront. Since then it has won a number of awards, most recently the Council of Europe Museum Prize for 2013.

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.
