The Museum of Liverpool was a bit overwhelming for me. There’s a lot to see in the museum.. and they pretty much jam all sorts of history in there. I’m pretty sure we missed a lot of it since we got there later in the afternoon. But we did get an overview of the rise and fall of Liverpool as a “great” city, and how the city was affected by world events such as the Industrial Revolution and WWII.
We watched a short documentary called “The Power and the Glory?”, which pretty much gave us a (very quick) history of England and Liverpool… how Liverpool grew because of trading (import/export) overseas, and how the decline of the British Empire eventually led to the downsizing of the city… It was quite fascinating.
