Liverpool's History Revealed

The eagerly awaited Museum of Liverpool opened in July

The museum aims to reflect the city's global significance through its unique geography, history and culture; and visitors have the chance to explore how the port, its people, their creativity and sporting history have shaped the city.

Among its 6,000 artefacts are Ken Dodd's tickling sticks and the skeleton of the 1900 Grand National winner. Other exhibits include the school-hall stage on which John Lennon and Paul McCartney first played, the Brookside Close street sign from the television soap and items dating back to the ice age. Working alongside exhibition designers, Haley Sharpe and Redman Design, as well as fit-out contractors, Patton Heritage, and exhibition walling contractors, Protean, ClickNetherfield designed and manufactured a total of 173 cases for the museum. These were done over three phases, the final of which opened to the public at the end of November 2011. The museum was officially opened by a local school boy, and throughout the day was visited by a record-breaking 12,000 guests. The evening ceremony was attended by some of Liverpool's most famous faces, including Yoko Ono, John Conteh, Claire Sweeney and Ken Dodd who we managed to snap admiring one of our cases!
