Merseyside Maritime Museum

In the 19th century, Merseyside Maritime Museum in Liverpool was considered as the most important ports of the world, when some 40% of the world trade was shipped from here in the Liverpool. It has started to develop and prosper as far back as the early 19th century, when the silting up toe the Dee river off the Chester port. With the shift to bulk carriers and containerisation, the activities of the port moved north to the modern dock located at the Bootle, Seaforth and Albert Dock was closed in 1972.

Today, Albert Dock is considered as a huge heritage area and its large Victorian warehouses also include attractions like as Tate Liverpool, a museum of 20th-century art and a place known as the building of the Beatles story.

In 2008, it was considered as a European capitalist culture, the city invested largely in refurbished and new museums, including the HM revenue and customs museum, the International Slavery Museum, housed in the same building as the Maritime museum. And all through the city are sites linked to the Beatles and their music.

In 1908, the huge Royal lover building was built at Pier Head by the Royal Liver assurance company, which measures ninety-eight meters from the ground to the top of the 2 statues of fictitious Liver Birds. The walker art gallery is located in the city centre, with its collection of European art from the 14th century to the present day, and the World Museum Liverpool, which consists a planetarium and a natural history centre. There is a neo - classical building nearby the St George’s Hall, a former concert hall, and Crown Court established now.

There are two cathedrals South of the city Liverpool, an Anglican cathedral, the largest in Britain and took 70 years to complete the construction and the whole building was settled in 1978. The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, a Roman Catholic cathedral completed in 1967, is exceptional for its circular design.
