At the museum

In this section, you’ll get a glimpse behind the scenes of the museum—from a day in the life of a volunteer and team building exercises, to the logistics of decanting our galleries or putting on a late event.

We asked historian Shirin Hirsch from our neighbours, People’s History Museum, to explain the politics of the time around 1830 and why the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway turned out to be such a rebellious and highly charged day.

At our museum we tell some really big stories about science and industry, from the early days of the cotton and rail industries, when the speed of change was terrifying, to the science of the future, from robots to graphene and beyond.
