In 2005, a new central entrance hall and a six-story atrium were added to World Museum. After you pass through this grand atrium, you'll find galleries filled with archaeological, ethnological, and scientific artifacts. Inside, the World Cultures gallery allows you to explore the world without leaving Liverpool. If strange creatures are your passion, then check out the Bug House. Admission to the attraction, and the in-house planetarium, is free. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Liverpool trip simple and quick.

  • Please visit this place for sure if you are in Liverpool. You'll find very good things and you'll get good knowledge of the better part of the world. The culture that used to exist in the world is presented in a great display with every small detail. Planetarium display is expected to be awesome, don't forget to visit this attraction. Enjoy.
  • What a gem of a place, went to see terracotta army and spent an unexpected day enjoying the rest of this museum. It is clearly dated but if you spend the time to explore it proved to be very interesting, especially the rooms with the pull out draws. Staff helpful and polite. If you have a genuine interest to learn then this is for you. Fantastic wheelchair access too.
