MUSEUM OF LIVERPOOL:
Albert Dock, Pier Head, The Beatles, Liverpool FC


Museum of Liverpool opened in 2011, replacing, the old Museum of Liverpool Life. This futuristic, curvy building, designed by the Danish architect bureau 3XN, is situated right next to the water on Pier Head in Albert Dock. There is a significant, circular staircase in the atrium, that resembles New York's Guggenheim Museum. Inside the museum you find the Beatles , football team clothes from Liverpool FC, a model of Albert Dock, architectural models (one big of the dismissed proposal for Metropolitan Cathedral), horse carriages, a Ford Anglia, a train wagon, ships, rooms, furniture, toys and other items with connection to the city of Liverpool and the rest of the UK nation. It has more then 6000 objects on 8000 square meters. There is a large panoramic photo in one the rooms, that shows the similarities with Liverpool's and Shanghai's waterfront skylines!

The building also features viewing windows towards Albert Dock, Pier Head and the Three Graces.
