WHAT’S ON: The Museum of Liverpool’s much-loved Wondrous Place gallery reopens

The Museum is back  and it’s better than ever!


The Museum of Liverpool’s much-loved Wondrous Place gallery reopens to the public on 26 November 2021.

Originally installed ten years ago when the museum opened in 2011, Wondrous Place continues to celebrate Liverpool’s internationally recognised creative expression and influence with exciting new displays and interactives, alongside visitors’ favourites from the original space.

The opening weekend (27 and 28 November) will be an action-packed couple of days with free performances and family activities to mark the return of this popular gallery.

Visitors will be pleased to see the return of the immersive video displays: In the town where I was born, which explores the influence of Liverpool on The Beatles and Kicking and Screaming – the Football Show, which sweeps viewers on an up-to-date emotional journey of ‘the match’ as seen through the eyes of Red and Blue fans.

An exciting new element is an insight into the region’s gaming industry, particularly the important role of the Liverpool studio, Psygnosis, and a chance to play games developed in the city, such as Lemmings and Wipeout Omega Collection.

From iconic Beatles suits and Merseybeat memorabilia, to a dreamy Lita Roza dress, incredible handbills from Eric’s nightclub and a display on Liverpool’s folk music scene, the gallery explores Liverpool’s enviable reputation for musical creativity.

Kate Johnson, Head of the Museum of Liverpool said: “We’re incredibly excited to be reinstating the popular Wondrous Place gallery, with so many fabulous updates. Visitors can look forward to a vibrant, fascinating gallery, that take them to the heart of what makes Liverpool such a creative place.

“Wondrous Place will of course be celebrating the world-famous names, from The Beatles to Liverpool and Everton FC, but it will also explore lesser-known cultural creators; the writers, producers and performers of Merseyside that have helped craft the city’s sense of place in the world, how it and its people are seen.

“We are grateful to all those people, communities and organisations who have worked with us to reinstate this much-loved gallery with new and inspiring content.”

Wondrous Place was closed in 2018 to make way for the blockbuster exhibition, Double Fantasy John & Yoko (13 May 2018 to 03 November 2019), seen by almost 700,000 people, followed by Liverpool on Wheels (14 February 2020 to 3 January 2021).
