Loyd Grossman gets to work

Today was a significant date in the story of the Museum of Liverpool. After years of planning, followed by the excavation of the site by our field archaeology unit, work has finally started on site to build the new museum.

The occasion was officially marked with a groundcutting ceremony with our chairman Loyd Grossman. If you can’t wait until 2011 to see the finished building, you can find out what it will look like on our capital projects pages.
