Museums are not in short supply in Liverpool, particularly at the Albert Dock. If it’s the city’s musical heritage you want to learn about, there’s The Beatles Story; a must-see on the tourist calendar and a good way to find out more about the backstory to the Merseybeat. There’s also the Liverpool Maritime Museum – handily incorporating the International Slavery Museum on the third floor – which provides a fascinating window into Liverpool’s history as the former gateway to the United Kingdom.
Down the road at the Pier Head you’ll find the swanky new Museum of Liverpool, opened in 2011 among the listed buildings that make up the city’s iconic skyline, which takes a look at the history of the city as a whole with a nicely varied array of attractions and exhibitions on show. More traditional museum fare can be found at the impressive World Museum, which can be found alongside St George’s Hall and the Walker Art Gallery in the finery of the city’s cultural quarter.
There’s more to see and plenty to explore, whether you’re new to the city or a resident looking for a way to spend a bank holiday.
