Museum of Liverpool opened in 2011.
As a charity, National Museums Liverpool relies on the support of charitable donations. However big or small, all donations go into supporting our work looking after the wonderful collections, sharing and making them accessible to millions of visitors every year.
One very important and long-time supporter of National Museums Liverpool is the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), without whom some of our venues might look very different and in some cases would not exist at all.
Galkoff's shop front beautifully conserved and protected for future generations thanks to HLF
These major capital projects often grab the headlines, but HLF’s backing also makes a crucial difference to smaller projects. Most recently we opened Galkoff’s and the Secret Life of Pembroke Place at Museum of Liverpool, which following HLF support enabled a team of conservators to rescue and conserve the beautiful Art Deco tiled frontage of a kosher butchers. The funding also supported research into the Jewish and wider community of the area, as well as an archaeological dig of Liverpool’s last remaining courthouse.
These are just a few of the reasons we’re extremely grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund and why we are delighted to back their campaign, #Thankstoyou, a week of free events and openings for National Lottery players who support good causes whenever they buy a lottery ticket.
From 3-9 December there will be free tours and events for lottery players at the Museum of Liverpool. Some of the fascinating stories this amazing building holds will be shared through tours and interactive sessions for the whole family.
There will also be free curator-led tours of the wonderful Galkoff’s exhibition. Visitors will be given a unique experience, learning from the curators how the project came about and learning fascinating details about the vibrant history of this part of the city.
