Everyone here is getting excited about the Museum of Liverpool‘s opening, which is now less than three weeks away. It seems that it’s not just us – photographer Pete Carr recently devoted a week long series of features on his photoblog to documenting the creation of the museum, including photographs of everything from aerial shots to internal views.

If you have taken any photos of the museum recently then we’d love to see them. If you add them to the We love the Museum of Liverpool group on Flickr before 4 July then you could win golden tickets to a special breakfast celebration and preview on the opening day, 19 July 2011, from 8.30-10am.

There are lots of other ways to win golden tickets if you follow the Museum of Liverpool on twitter, facebook or subscribe to the e-newsletter. Full details of our golden ticket offers are on our website. You’ve only got until Sunday to take part though so don’t miss out. You could be one of the very first visitors to set foot inside the building that everyone is talking about.

Dobby arrives at World Museum

Dobby at World Museum

My name is Dobby. I like salt and vinegar crisps. Nom nom! Anyway, I’m not supposed to talk about crisps I don’t think. In fact, I need to tell you something very important. I have come here from a far away land to visit World Museum. Yes, I know! It’s very exciting! In our land, we don’t have museums or art galleries, so it’s a very interesting and strange idea. You have lots of stuff from outside, from all over the world, in your museum. Weird! Read more…

Polar prizewinner

11 February 2011 by Dawn

Last year we invited you to share your pictures of spectacular scenery, unusual locations and far-flung destinations as part of our photography competition, inspired by the ‘Endurance: Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure’ exhibition. We teamed up with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic to give one lucky winner and three friends the chance to see the live orchestral & cinematic production, ‘Polar’.

The quality of entries was exceptional, but we’re thrilled to report that the prize was won by Mr Bernard Bowler for his truly outstanding photograph, Skiddaw. Despite the apparent Antarctic conditions depicted, the picture was taken in the Lake District. Read more…

The ‘A Collector’s Eye’ catalogue

Just a few weeks to the opening of the next must-see exhibition at the Walker, ‘A Collector’s Eye: Cranach to Pissarro’. Old Masters like Rubens, El Greco, Delacroix and Cranach are included alongside Impressionists such as Pissarro and Sisley in a tour of five centuries of art.

If you can’t make it to the exhibition, fancy doing a bit of reading in advance or just can’t wait to visit, then the accompanying catalogue is for you. All of the exhibition works are featured, each with its own double page spread, and at £9.99 it’s a snip at twice the price. Read more…

Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure Competition

24 November 2010 by davidl

Open now at Merseyside Maritime Museum, Endurance: Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure tells the amazing story of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 expedition to the vast continent of Antarctica, as told through the photographs taken of the voyage by Frank Hurley, who dove into icy waters to retrieve his negatives.

To celebrate this pioneering explorer spirit we want to see photos of your travels and explorations, whether from exotic destinations thousands of miles away or somewhere unusual closer to home. You don’t have to brave the harsh conditions that Shackleton and his crew endured, just be imaginative! Read more…

13 October 2010 by davidl

The fab Plantastic! exhibition at World Museum enthralled visitors until 5 September and during this time visitors had the chance to populate our very own Plantastic! garden on Flickr with photos of all the weird and wonderful wildlife in and around Liverpool. All entrants were in with a chance of winning a month’s supply of tasty organic veg bags from Windmill Organic of Smithdown Road, and now the lucky winner has been chosen.

We had a dazzling range of interesting photos but after much deliberation the team at World Museum chose Snails Trails by Cyran Dorman, which you can see below.
