World of Fun; Mark Williams and His Wife Diane Took Their Two Children to Liverpool to Visit the World Museum and to Hit New Shopping Attraction One Days Out


What's the attraction?

The World Museum on William Brown Street - formerly Liverpool Museum - has thousands of fascinating exhibits, many on display for the first time.

New galleries include world cultures, bug house, new aquarium, Weston discovery centre and Clore natural history centre. Nearby there's Liverpool One, a fabulous new shopping and leisure district, the size of 28 full-size football pitches.

What's on offer?

The bug house is dedicated to the world of creepy-crawlies, with giant animatronics including a two metre house-fly and live vivariums of scuttling insects. The aquarium is home to captivating underwater creatures, and children can get up close to fish and other sea life.

Clore Natural History Centre hosts a world of plants, animals, rocks and minerals, with hands-on exhibits.

World cultures features more than 1,500 artifacts exploring Liverpool's legacy as a world port.

Weston discovery centre features objects from the museum's archaeology and ethnology collections. The treasure house theatre hosts music and dance performances, video conferences linking up with people and places around the world and fascinating lectures by experts.

How long did you stay?

We arrived at about 11am in the morning and left about 5pm. There is plenty to see and do in the city.

Did you take a brolly?

The World Museum is a great indoor attraction for a cold winter's day.

What did you do there?

There's also an exhibition about 60 years of Liverpool music, The Beat Goes On, until November 1. It's bursting with juke boxes and fascinating films. We also went to the aquarium and the planetarium. James enjoyed the dinosaur section with its skeletons. We would have spent all day there if it wasn't so packed. After all that culture it was time for a bit of shopping for the ladies while James and I took a detour around Matthew Street to look at the Cavern (home of the Beatles of course). …
