250,000 visitors for Museum of Liverpool’s first month
On 19 June, the British city celebrated the opening of its latest institution, the Museum of Liverpool. Four weeks later, the results are extremely positive,  announcing 250,000 visitors, – or 8,300 per day. The administration’s target goal was easily succeeded, tripling their estimation of 78,000 people for the first month.Since its opening the museum is free, proposing an exhibition surrounding the theme of Liverpool and its inhabitants, with notably a section featuring “People’s Portrait” in which Mike McCartney presents his photography. In a different section of the museum, Ben Johnson’s The Liverpool Cityscape – temporarily exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery during the museums construction – is now on display. Johnson took three years to paint the piece that depicts Liverpool during its time as the European capital of culture. The museum also features works of art dedicated to the Beatles and local football teams Liverpool FC and Everton.
