Trip Planner:   Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Merseyside  /  Liverpool  /  World Museum
In 2005, a new central entrance hall and a six-story atrium were added to World Museum. After you pass through this grand atrium, you'll find galleries filled with archaeological, ethnological, and scientific artifacts. Inside, the World Cultures gallery allows you to explore the world without leaving Liverpool. If strange creatures are your passion, then check out the Bug House. Admission to the attraction, and the in-house planetarium, is free. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Liverpool trip simple and quick.

  • Went here with two of my nephew's and my mum we had a great day here. There are many different things to look out and find out some interesting things. The aquarium was closed for renovations when went so didn't get to see that part how ever we all really enjoyed the planetarium.
  • A fantastic place to visit with the family, there are 5 floors and it is accessible with three lifts and added bonus of an indoor picnic area. The aquarium is quite small but has a wide variety of sea creatures, the mummies exhibit is brilliant. Entry is free with a request for donations.
