In 2007 the Board of Directors decided to fundraise for the International Slavery Museum and new Museum of Liverpool, helping to provide key funding towards the continuation and development of these venues.
Museum of Liverpool
The Museum of Liverpool opened on 19 July 2011 and explores Liverpool’s unique contribution to, and relationships with the world through various themed galleries. Capturing Liverpool’s diverse and vibrant history and character on an international scale, the Museum of Liverpool has exceeded all expectations and will have welcomed more than one million visitors in its first year of opening.
International Slavery Museum
The International Slavery Museum, opened on 23 August 2007, highlights the international importance of slavery, both in a historic and contemporary context. Working in partnership with other museums with a focus on freedom and enslavement, the museum provides opportunities for greater awareness and understanding of the legacy of slavery today.
AFNML is fundraising to help further developments at the International Slavery Museum, including the opening of an Education and Research Centre.
