Becoming a trustee

Help us to be innovative, accountable, creative and inclusive. Become a trustee.

Here at National Museums Liverpool we are eager to continue growing larger and more diverse audiences. We want our visitors to engage with us in new and exciting ways; and we want you to help us to achieve this.

National Museums Liverpool is one of the world's great museum services with local, regional, national and international activities. Through our progressive, outward looking approach, we inspire millions of people in ways that are inclusive and challenging, creating real social value. Our International Slavery Museum is helping redefine just how relevant and effective a museum can be, and we are currently building a new Museum of Liverpool, which will set a benchmark for city museums worldwide. If you are excited about our museums, our mission, our collections, and what we do with them, help us to meet the challenges of the future by joining our Board of Trustees.
