William Brown St, Liverpool L3 8EN
(Open daily 10am - 5pm)
Liverpool's award winning (and free-to-enter) World Museum offers visitors extensive collections covering archaeology, ethnology and the natural and physical sciences, revealing millions of years of the earth’s history through thousands of exhibits and hands-on activities. There is also a new cafe and shop for you to relax, get some refreshments and buy a memento of your visit.
A diverse range of special exhibitions (which may charge admission) are also displayed.
For over 2,000 years, an underground army of life-sized terracotta warriors secretly guarded the tomb of China’s First Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, until a chance discovery in 1974 unlocked the mysteries of a vanished empire.
Showcasing objects from one of the world’s greatest archaeological discoveries, the exhibition will include a number of objects that have never been on show in the UK. These spectacular artefacts will shed light on the Emperor's pursuit of immortality and show how he prepared for the afterlife, as well as giving visitors a unique insight into everyday life in China more than two thousand years ago.
