Part of National Museums Liverpool
The World Cultures gallery showcases National Museums Liverpool’s huge collections from Africa, The Americas, Asia and Oceania. Featuring more than 1,600 objects, the gallery explores the exchange of ideas and objects between Europe and the many cultures represented in the displays.
It is now 15 years since the gallery opened and it is time for a change.
We have created a space to help us think through what that change might be and we want you to join us in the conversation. You will soon find a new discussion area in the gallery so you can post your thoughts, ideas, and reactions to the changes we plan to make. If you cannot visit the World Museum you can also talk to us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. We will listen and respond to what you have to say.
We hope that some of the first things you will talk to us about are the new gallery displays we will build over the next 12 months. They will showcase the exciting collaborations we have undertaken with a number of inspiring people who have provoked us to think differently about how we exhibit and how we think about the collections. The new displays will be creative, imaginative, challenging, and in places very funny.
So, let’s start talking and see where we go next with the World Cultures gallery.
William Brown Street, Liverpool L3 8EN
