Opened in 1853, the World Museum was originally housed on Duke Street but due to such high demand and popularity, it moved into the purpose built William Brown Street location in 1860.

World Museum is one of the most popular and respected museums in Liverpool and the UK and with an ever changing events calendar it’s a definite must see for all visitors and Liverpool locals.
All World Museum visitors are encouraged to visit the Planetarium and see a dedicated show which will educate you on the universe and take you on a journey through space and time.
