Heritage at the Heart of the City
National Museums Liverpool in 2007
In 2007 Liverpool will be 800 years old. Where better to celebrate this Year of Heritage than in Liverpool, a city that has more museums and galleries than any other regional city in Europe?
National Museums Liverpool has an exciting programme for 2007 which explores many aspects of Liverpool’s incredible history. Among the most significant of the events is the opening of the International Slavery Museum telling the story of the transatlantic slave trade, the reopening of the Sudley House featuring the only surviving Victorian merchant art collection in Britain still hanging in its original location and a major new exhibition, Magical History Tour, that charts the history of this unique city.
At the Walker Art Gallery Doves and Dreams tells the tragic story of two art nouveau artists working in Liverpool, in addition the gallery will host exhibitions by sons of Liverpool science fiction artist Josh Kirby and internationally renowned maker Peter Chang.
