As the winter draws to a close, two new exhibitions at the Walker Art Gallery and World Museum are set to become highlights of Liverpool’s cultural agenda over the summer months, offering very different but equally mesmerising experiences for visitors.
On 21st May, The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics exhibition opens at the Walker Art Gallery, featuring a collection of Tudor portraits from the Gallery’s own collection alongside roughly 70 key works from the National Portrait Gallery, many of which have never been seen before outside of London. Apart from portraits, the exhibition will also include several famous Tudor objects such as the Westminster Tournament Roll, the Armada Maps and the Bacton Altar Cloth, which is thought to be the sole surviving dress of Queen Elizabeth I.
A week later on 27th May, Doctor Who: Worlds of Wonder lands at Liverpool’s World Museum. This thrilling interactive exhibition will explore the world of science within the universe of Doctor Who, allowing visitors to engage with the show’s original artefacts, sets, costumes and props. The exhibition is a must-see for Doctor Who fans and science enthusiasts alike, who will be able to follow the Doctor’s adventures and encounters across space and time, while discovering the science that weaves its way through the history of the longest-running sci-fi TV show in the world.
Further details about these two upcoming exhibitions are available on the National Museums Liverpool website, where you can also book advance tickets:
