Venue hire and corporate events 


For exquisite buildings in iconic locations, look no further than National Museums Liverpool. Host your event in one of our venues, each housing nationally and internationally important collections of stunning art and beautiful artefacts, right in the heart of Liverpool.

Our spaces enable us to host events for up to 1,000 guests, ranging from private dining, receptions, conferences, exhibitions, weddings, filming and meetings. Also available are three lecture theatres, all with integrated audio/visual technology and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

We have recently redeveloped an exceptional ground floor space at World Museum, transforming a part of the building which opened in 1901 into a versatile venue for events, while maintaining original architecture and features. Read more about the redevelopment and its launch here.
