It is the first anniversary of the opening World Museum Liverpool (formerly Liverpool Museum) and a staggering 629,000 visitors have passed through its doors – 85% more than in the previous year.
John Millard (Keeper of WML) says: “The remarkable success of World Museum Liverpool shows how the public are flocking into museums in ever-increasing numbers. This year National Museums Liverpool has had more visitors than at any other time in its history and this greater number of visitors are being more inspired and engaged than ever before.”
If you go along today (Saturday) you may even be personally welcomed by John Millard and if you’re really lucky you’ll get a piece of the birthday cake. That’s if 4 yr old Simon Bezanson, pictured here, hasn’t already eaten it all.
Also seen here are John Millard and some of the staff admiring the cake.
