This holiday, we went to Liverpool to visit some national museums. There are some exhibitions attracted me a lot from the journey.
I can feel the deveopment of the city from the combination of traditonal and mordern achitecture .
Among all the national museums, the Merseyside Maritime Musuem is the most attractive for me. It is not because the model of Titanic or Other Ships. Actually, I am really interested on the “U-Boat” area in the museum. I learned the “U-Boat” by the German movie “Das-Boat”.
The “U-Boat” is the abbreviation the “Untersee-boot” which means submarine in German. The first U-boat was built in 1906. The Merseyside Maritime Museum exhibits the design of radio room, torpedo and military goods on U-boat.
It is surprised amazing to design a stable and functional submarine in the 1910s, especially the technology development is relatively poor in that time.
And also, there are many other stories about different ships, such as tragic Titanic and Lusitania. It also has some interaction to let us feeling the sail.
Another museum left us deep impression is the international slavery museum. It’s about life in west Africa.The first main section in the International Slavery Museum.’Life in West Africa’, introduces the continent as the birthplace of human culture and civilisations.
This is a traditional lgbo family compound.This family unit is still very important in Igbo culture in Africa.In earlier times a titled elder usually had more than one wife, so his compound included several buildings.
This is a Museum of Liverpool.National Museums Liverpool intention is for the new venue to tell the story of Liverpool and its people, and reflect the city’s global significance.
On the ground floor, display the Liverpool and Manchester Railway was the world’s first twin-track inter-urban passenger railway in which all the trains were timetabled and ticketed.
The Museum also has a good area named Little Liverpool, a gallery for children under six to interaction.
A staircase spirals up through an atrium at the heart of the museum, leading to three floors of galleries that exhibit social history and popular culture.
After this journey, it made me interested in the design of the ship, especially boathouse.
