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 1,300+ 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 tours of the Museum of Liverpool’s Irish objects.
Visitors who book for these in-person tour will additionally 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.
Two tours will leave at 10.30am, 12pm and 2.30pm, Sat 21 Oct, Museum of Liverpool. Meet under the Atrium’s big screen.
