<strong>Creative treats for mums at National Museums Liverpool</strong>
World Museum Liverpool

Gifts in store for Mother’s Day at Liverpool’s museums and art galleries.

National Museums Liverpool (NML) has treats in store for mums and special people across the region, as its venues prepare for a busy Mother’s Day.

Thousands of visitors will step through the doors of NML’s seven museums and art galleries on Sunday 19 March, with a line-up of wonderful exhibitions and displays that are popular with families and mums of all ages.

Karen O’Connor, National Museums Liverpool’s Director of Commercial Enterprises, said: “Mother’s Day is one of our busiest Sundays of the year. It’s always lovely to see generations of families enjoying themselves at our venues – from our aquarium at World Museum, to the Titanic and Liverpool story at Maritime Museum. With many of our displays and exhibitions free to enter or ‘pay what you think’, there’s loads of options for fun family days out.

“Our online shop is attracting shoppers looking for a creative gift too – and National Museums Liverpool’s retail team have picked out some of our favourite gifts for the mums and mother figures in people’s lives. We’ve also added membership gifts for those wanting to create memorable experiences throughout the year.”
