Our venues

Outstanding locations, perfectly situated


Whether you’re making a film, documentary, advert or news programme, we welcome requests to film at our museums and galleries. Our team have the resources and expertise to help make your project a success, and we will help to guide you through every stage of the process, from a site visit through to supporting and managing your filming day. From historic court rooms - ideal for period dramas - to a ship permanently docked at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, our venues provide a wide range of opportunities.

Commercial filming in our museums and galleries requires a high level of organisation and management so will therefore incur a charge. If your filming is of our collections and exhibitions, relating to a topical news story, or interviewing our staff to showcase the museum, then this may be accommodated free of charge.
