The People's Republic gallery is about the experience of living in the city: what it means to be Liverpudlian, how people have left their mark on Liverpool and the impact and issues caused by dramatic social change over the last 200 years.

In this gallery you can explore the diverse stories and unique identity of Liverpool and its people. Be inspired by the everyday and extraordinary contributions people have made over its turbulent history, and join in and debate issues affecting the city today.
