The reviewers on Newsnight have all just been raving about the World Museum Liverpool which opens on April 29th. Its gonna be great!
Here’s the blurb….

World Museum Liverpool – formerly Liverpool Museum – opens to the public on Friday 29 April 2005.

A massive £35 million project has doubled the size of the popular museum – an attraction in the city since 1853. World Museum Liverpool features expanded galleries and improved facilities including new features such as the World Cultures gallery, the Bug House where visitors will encounter giant model insects, a new Aquarium and the Weston Discovery Centre, Clore Natural History Centre and Treasure House Theatre with their thrilling hands-on experiences.

John Millard, keeper of World Museum Liverpool, says:

“Visitors will find the new World Museum Liverpool awesome and exciting. It has exhibits covering millions of years, around the world and into space.There are familiar friends from the old museum, like a great totem pole from north west America and there’s a new aquarium and thousands of new exhibits. It’s a huge expansion for the museum and I hope people will find not only lots to see and get excited about, but also lots to do in the new museum.
