Guided tours of Museum’s Irish collections 01Feb

In 2021, Liverpool Irish Festival began our custodianship of the Liverpool Irish Famine Trail.

We formed a volunteer History Research Group (who’ve since undertaken c.1,500 hours of research) and released a book: Liverpool Irish Famine Trail: Revive (available in the Museum’s gift shop or online).

Having trained the group in tour creation and management – and thoroughly researching the objects on display – the History Research Group will lead a tour of the Museum of Liverpool’s Irish objects, revisitng the tours they led during #LIF2023.

Visitors will also take in the Pilotage Building, just outside the Museum.  Tours are anticipated to take approximately 45-60mins, depending on audience questions. These activities have been made possible with funds from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Visitors can undertake the Irish objects tour as a self-guided trail, which requires no booking (see guide map). Paper maps can be collected (for free) from leaflet holders at the Museum.


The tour leaves the Museum of Liverpool‘s atrium at 3.00pm on Thurs 1 Feb 2024, in honour of St Brigid. People who hope to join should meet under the Atrium’s big screen. The tour will operate on a first-come first-served basis, so please arrive promptly.

Made possible with funds from The National Lottery Heritage Fund logo.
