The VG&M is situated on Brownlow Hill in the University of Liverpool’s flagship building, designed by Alfred Waterhouse in the architect’s distinctive red brick style and opened in 1892. This inspired other civic universities in the nineteenth century and the term ‘red brick university’ was born.
Whilst history is very important to the VG&M, so is the future. The new website, which can be seen here - http://vgm.liv.ac.uk, has been designed and implemented to act as a vivid and engaging platform to this iconic Liverpool tourist attraction and the treasures it holds.
The museum area, occupying the original Tate library on the second floor of the building showcases materials from many unusual collections including dentistry, zoology and even oceanography.
The run up to Christmas is a busy time at the VG&M, with a wide range of talks, workshops and events, the majority free. You can also enjoy a seasonal meal in the fantastic ground floor Waterhouse cafe for a limited period during December. Those looking to soak up some culture and history this Christmas whilst also having fun with the family are urged to take a look at the all new VG&M website today. Bookings can be made by calling us direct on Tel: 0151 794 2348 or getting in touch via social networking.
