The ins and outs of Sudley House

5 September 2012 by Laura C

A year after joining National Museums Liverpool as a Visitor Assistant at the brand new Museum of Liverpool I find myself transported back in time, I have swapped the very new for the very very old.

I now work at the beautiful hidden gem that is Sudley House. With its period features and stunning artwork, working in a Victorian home is a dream come true for me. I’ll have Dickens over a DS any day of the week!

This weekend coming up, as part of the Heritage open month, here at Sudley we have A Grand Tour of the house and its estate.  Read more…

My second favourite object in the Museum of Liverpool is situated in the Wondrous Place galley, it’s a whole case dedicated to Codman’s Punch and Judy. The case contains a Punch, a Judy, a Crocodile and perhaps even a sneaky clown who goes by the name of Joey.

The family run Codman’s Punch and Judy show used to take place at Lime Street and then later at Williamson Square, pictures around the case show crowds of people watching a show. These shows were way before my time, we’re talking the 1800′s here, so you may be wondering why it’s one of my favourite things in the museum… Well, Codman’s Punch and Judy holds a very special place in my heart and as soon as I set eyes on it in the new museum the memories came flooding back.
