#Thankstoyou – Free entry to Taki Katei for lottery ticket holders

31 October 2019 by Laura

Step back in time to 19th century Japan with the exquisite artwork of Taki Katei, and from 23 November to 1 December, National Lottery players will be able to see this stunning exhibition free of charge at World Museum.

Visitors who bring a lottery ticket to the Museum during those nine days will be offered free entrance to the exhibition, and the opportunity to explore the work of this remarkable artist, shown for the first time outside Japan.

Delicate drawings and paintings on silk depict the beautiful flora and fauna of the country and demonstrate why Katei became a favourite of the Japanese Imperial court.

National Lottery players have contributed to National Museums Liverpool in a variety of ways. From the development of the International Slavery Museum in 2007 to the refurbishment of the Lady Lever Art Gallery’s South End (2014), the unwavering support of National Lottery has made a huge difference to a variety of our projects, both big and small.

This is why we are very pleased to be part of the #thankstoyou campaign and mark 25 years of The National Lottery with free entry to this special exhibition.

Last chance to vote for us!

26 July 2018 by Richard

A World Cup final, Wimbledon final  – and on Friday, the last chance to vote for the International Slavery Museum for this year’s National Lottery Fund Good Causes Award – July has it all.

If we are to judge the success of a museum by the amount of trophies and prizes it has been awarded though; it would in my view miss the point. And in our case this is good as we have technically not ‘won’ that much these past 10 years even though our work and ethos – and in particular our educational programmes with young people – are globally recognised and seen as exemplars within the field of museums and social justice.  Read more…
