National Museums

National Museums Liverpool is England’s only national collection based outside London. These consist of eight unique venues and are home to fabulously varied collections covering everything from social history to space travel, entomology to ethnology, dinosaurs to docks, arts to archaeology.

World Museum Liverpool

Museum of Liverpool is one of Britain's finest museums, with extensive collections and special attractions including the award-winning hands-on Natural History Centre and the Planetarium. The museum has recently undergone extensive refurbishment in order to double the size of the display spaces, making even more of the collections accessible for visitors. Major new galleries include World Cultures, the Bug House and the Weston Discovery Centre. A central entrance hall and six-storey atrium opened in 2008. On reopening after this refurbishment and extension the museum's name changed from it's previous title of 'Liverpool Museum', which it has held since its establishment at its current William Brown Street site in 1860.

The Walker is the major art gallery of Liverpool, which houses one of the largest art collections in England, outside of London, causing some to refer to it as "the National Gallery of the North".

Today it houses a varied collection including many Italian and Netherlandish paintings from 1350–1550, European art from 1550–1900 including works by Rembrandt, Poussin and Degas, 18th and 19th century British art, including a major collection of Victorian painting and many Pre-Raphaelite works, a wide collection of prints, drawings and watercolours, 20th century works by artists such as Lucian Freud, David Hockney and Gilbert and George and one of the most important sculpture collections outside London.
