There’s a nice little video on 3XN’s website of their plans for the new Museum of Liverpool to be built on the waterfront.
Its all in flash so you’ll need to navigate to News | Projects | Museum of Liverpool
The building is due to be completed by the end of 2008. The fit out will be finished and the museum will be open in 2010.
This brand new museum will build on the huge success of the former Museum of Liverpool Life. The old museum, with its limited floor space, could no longer accommodate the more than 300,000 visits a year it was receiving. With a greater amount of space, the new museum will be able to better represent the history of the city and can place Liverpool within a wider British urban context.
It can also provide a showcase for National Museums Liverpool’s outstanding collections, currently held in storage, on a scale that cannot be realised within the existing venues, providing and unprecedented level of access to them.
