This week NML announced that the new Museum of Liverpool will open in July 2011 and we were privileged to be shown around to have a look as displays are being installed. It’s a magnificent, massive space, a lot of it still empty but each area is gradually filling up. Very exciting, I can’t wait till it opens and the crowds start pouring in.
