Kate Johnson, Director of the Museum of Liverpool, said: “We are incredibly happy to restore the popular Wondrous Place gallery, with so many fabulous updates.

“Visitors can expect a vibrant and fascinating gallery, which takes them to the heart of what makes Liverpool such a creative place.

“Wondrous Place will of course celebrate world famous names, from the Beatles to Liverpool and Everton FC, but it will also explore lesser-known cultural creators; the writers, producers and performers of Merseyside who have helped shape the meaning of the city’s place in the world, how it and its people are viewed. “

She added, “We are grateful to all of the people, communities and organizations who have worked with us to re-establish this much-loved gallery with new and inspiring content.”

The museum will be closed from December 6 to 14 to allow them to prepare to host a meeting of G7 foreign and development ministers.

As part of the preparations, visitors might notice some changes to the displays in the coming weeks.
