Museum of Liverpool Opens Doors

20/07/2011

The eagerly awaited £72m Museum of Liverpool opened to the public last week.  The 8,000 square metre building is the largest purpose-built museum in Britain for more than a century, and expects to attract a whopping 750,000 visitors every year.  The museum aims to reflect the city’s global significance through its unique geography, history and culture.  Visitors can 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 have designed and manufactured a total of 114 cases for the initial 2 phases, with a further 59 cases underway for phase 3 which is set to open in November.

The museum was officially opened by local school boy, Finn O’Hare, at 10am yesterday, 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!
