Sharing skills: Expert museum advice


As the only national museum service in England based outside London we have a unique role. Operating nationally and internationally, we are the largest cultural institution in the North West of England and the main museum service for Liverpool and the surrounding region. We hold in trust and safeguard some of the world’s most important museum collections, which are universal in their range. We have won many awards for our work, which includes the creation of two brand new museums.  

Drawing on this experience and the skills available within National Museums Liverpool, we offer a range of specialist advisory services designed to meet the needs of museums, municipalities and government organisations.


We have worked with museums, governments and cities across the world on a variety of museum development projects.


We have expertise in many areas of running a museum service, including building large and diverse audiences, developing new museums, managing shared services across multiple sites and campaigning for social justice.
