It’s almost time…

Laura Cox shares her excitement with us in her first blog here.

Museum of Liverpool

Excitement is well and truly building at the Museum of Liverpool this week, the final touches are being made to the four new galleries, and preparations are being made for the Royal visit.Phase two of the Museum of Liverpool will be opening on Friday 2nd December; the latest galleries open to the public will contain exhibits such as a 38 metre timeline documenting Liverpool’s vast history, Lion, the famous steam locomotive, a gallery dedicated to the King’s Regiment, and of course the highly anticipated Overhead Railway.

Working as a Visitor Assistant at the new museum means that I will have the absolute pleasure to be working on the day of the Royal visit. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will be visiting the museum on Thursday 1st December, they will be taking separate tours around the building to ensure that between them they see as much of the museum as possible. They will unveil a plaque commemorating their visit and they will also sign the visitors’ book.

I will also be working on the opening weekend of the new galleries; it will be a wonderfully special time, as many visitors are very much looking forward to seeing the new exhibits. Since the opening of phase one on the 19th July 2011, visitors have been asking the question ‘Where’s the Overhead Railway?’ and now with much delight I’ll be able to guide them to the carriage and listen to their memories of the ‘Docker’s Umbrella’.
