Our ground floor Cafe is now open following an exciting redevelopment, complete with a delicious new menu serving all your favourites, all freshly made. Enjoy a selection of hot meals, salads, soups, sandwiches, cakes and hot and cold drinks in a stylish, comfortable setting perfect for families.

World Museum’s Cafe was once the grand examination hall of the Technical School of Liverpool which opened in 1901, and intricate plasterworks adorning the space depict messages meant to inspire the students who studied in the building more than 100 years ago. The renovation of the Cafe facilities has made a feature of the original architecture, allowing visitors to enjoy delicious food and drink in a beautiful historic setting.

Breakfast is available from 10 – 11.30am, and hot lunches from 11.30am – 3.30pm. A selection of salads, sandwiches, baguettes, wraps and panini are available from 11am – 4.30pm.
