There are numerous reasons for visiting Liverpool; whether you are coming for business, to enjoy some retail therapy, to watch your favourite sporting heroes or simply to discover the history of the area. Once here, you will find there are plenty of things to do. But one of the things that Liverpool does best is history and art so a visit to the city wouldn’t be complete without a day spent at one of the many fantastic Liverpool museums.
The Victoria Gallery & Museum offers a fantastic day out for all ages and has a range of events and exhibitions throughout the year that will have you returning again and again. As Liverpool galleries go, the art collection at the VG&M is very impressive. The light and airy art gallery offers a number of rooms all based around different themes, including a special collection from 19th Century American wildlife artist, John James Audubon. Visiting exhibitions for 2013 include J.Chuhan’s ‘Recent Paintings’ solo exhibition, which focuses on the human form in interior spaces and opens to the public from the 1st of February.
The VG&M is great for kids too. Aside from their unique collection of curiosity’s collected over the 130 year history of the University of Liverpool, including a false teeth display and nightmares in a bottle collection, both kids and adults can get involved in a number of art and craft based workshops and classes ranging from modelling a 3D mini beast to Chinese ink painting. The majority of these workshops are held in the museum itself and are completely free to join, just turn up and take part.
