Brunel 200th Anniversary

Yesterday was the 200th anniversary of the birth of the engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. To mark the anniversary we’ve produced a trail leaflet showing relevant items from our collections on display in the Merseyside Maritime Museum.

Items include an oil painting of SS Great Britain and an exhibition model of PS Great Western.
