The new Museum of Liverpool has attracted half a million visitors since it opened in July.
New galleries, including The Great Port and Liverpool Overhead Railway, were opened on Friday, 2nd December, along with a gallery dedicated to Liverpool’s King’s Regiment
Janet Dugdale, Director of the Museum of Liverpool said: “Having already had 500,000 visitors through our doors to see the first galleries opened, we’re so excited to be opening even more, which will reveal some much-loved and anticipated objects that we know will be taken into the hearts of our visitors.
“People may have spotted our first object – the Liverpool Overhead Railway carriage – move into the Museum last year, and have been looking forward to seeing it on display along with another firm favourite, the famous 1838 steam locomotive ‘Lion’. These objects have been carefully restored by our conservation team, and we can’t wait to show them off.”
