Our ground floor Cafe is open daily 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. A recent renovation of the Cafe facilities has made a feature of the original architecture.

Opening times: 10am – 4.30pm daily
