As part of the new Sea Galleries development at Merseyside Maritime Museum, National Museums Liverpool is creating an improved Maritime Archives research centre. The improved Archive facilities will open in Spring 2018. They will offer an enhanced public space providing information about archive material relating to Liverpool shipping and seafarers, as well as improved research facilities for visitors accessing National Museums Liverpool’s Maritime Archives.
To enable this work to take place, Maritime Archives will need to temporarily close to the public from 1 September 2017 until spring 2018, and during this time we will be unable to accommodate researchers or answer enquiries.
