£3.4m cash boost for new Museum of Liverpool

Liverpool Echo.co.uk – News – Liverpool Local News – £3.4m cash boost for new Museum of Liverpool.

LIVERPOOL’S newest museum will receive a £3.4m cash boost to help create four new exhibition spaces.

The £72m Museum of Liverpool, the first newly-built national museum in the country for more than a century, will use the European cash to tell the story of Liverpool ‘in the context of the wider region’.

The museum will focus on four main themes: Port City, Creative City, People’s City and Global City.

The new cash is coming from the North West European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) which has already given £5m to the museum in recent years.
