Museum of Liverpool reopens entrance after 7 years
The Museum of Liverpool has finally completed repairs to its steps and terraces, seven years after it first opened.
Repair work on the outside of the building has finally been completed, after a lengthy dispute with contractors who carried out the work. The exterior steps and viewing terraces had been closed off to the public since 2013 due to safety concerns.
A long-running legal dispute over the standard of work carried out by the original architects - in particular the construction and design of external areas, was eventually resolved in favour of owners National Museums Liverpool (NML). NML were awarded a total of £2.3m in damages by the High Court.
But it took several more years for remedial work to get underway.
