Mother’s Day at the museums

25 March 2011 by Alison Cornmell

Our guest blogger Rosie Marr has some suggestions for ways to treat your mum this Mother’s Day.

Sunday 3rd of April 2011 is Mother’s Day. National Museums Liverpool provide a brilliant atmosphere for a relaxing and memorable day out. In fact, we’ve got Mother’s Day all wrapped up- from delicious food, to gorgeous and thoughtful gifts and even cards, so treat your mum to a day she will treasure!

Whatever your mum is interested in; there is something fun to do together in Liverpool. Why not visit the breath-taking Walker Art Gallery and see amazing paintings from Medieval to modern! Kids can even create their own masterpieces for their mums in the Big Art.  

The Lady Lever Art Gallery contains a spectacular collection of paintings, furniture, tapestries and sculpture. Or you could visit Sudley House, an elegant location where you can get psyched up for the Royal Wedding by visiting an exhibition of wedding dresses, or unwind in the beautiful springtime grounds around Sudley House. On the 2nd of April you can even make a bouquet of flowers for your mum. Best of all, everything is free!

Our cafés and dining rooms serve some of the best food in Liverpool- offering a brilliant variety of food and drink for amazing prices.

Whether you decide on posh afternoon tea or a traditional Sunday roast at the Maritime Dining Rooms, taking in the stunning city views with a glass of wine at the World Museum, or a more indulgent meal at the Lady Lever which has a delightful and diverse menu- all our museums and galleries serve a variety of tasty treats!

Our gift shops are a fantastic place to buy a unique Mother’s Day present! Surprise her with a book on her favourite exhibition (you can also buy these on our online shop ) or a poster of an amazing piece of artwork. We also have gorgeous jewellery, ornaments and souvenirs.

And remember to send a card! You can even send an e-card from our website, choosing from a number of Mother’s Day themed paintings (and even one of an Egyptian mummy!)
