The Museum of Liverpool is in the running to become the nation’s best loved National Lottery funded project. But we can only do this with your help…

The annual National Lottery Awards celebrate the difference that Lottery-funded projects have made to communities across the UK.

The Museum of Liverpool is shortlisted to win the prestigious Best Heritage Project category. And we would love to win – for our visitors and the city of Liverpool.

Opened in July 2011, the Museum of Liverpool benefited from National Lottery Funding and has welcomed more than 2.7m visitors in three years.

We tell the story of Liverpool through more than 6,000 objects across 10,000 square feet of gallery. Visitors can learn about pop to politics or be taken back in time to Liverpool’s Great Port with its Overhead Railway.

See the actual stage where John Lennon first performed with Paul McCartney, see Bill Shankly’s raincoat or the first Ford Anglia to roll off the production line. We tell the story of our city with passion and emotion.

But we are more than a museum, we are more than just objects. This Museum was created by the people of the city. More than 10,000 Merseysiders helped us develop content. We are family friendly, we offer education sessions for all key stages, we reach out to communities.

Our winning dementia awareness programme is called House of Memories. This is a unique collaboration between the cultural and social care sectors.  We feel we have something great to shout about. This Museum is your museum.

The Museum of Liverpool is competing against six other projects for the title of Best Heritage Project. But we are running out of time. You only have until midnight on 23 July to help the Museum win this amazing award.
