    It led me to a pic of the Cavern Gerard

    You're so right bluejeans, I haven't even posted any pics from the Global City gallery as I couldn't get in there for the crowds so will do that another day but the bit I glimpsed tells you why we are revered worldwide. When the overhead railway mock up and carriage are unveiled - and the Lion locomotive, there is sure to be another influx of interested people, especially those of course with a passion for trains. Then there is the port city - which really is a taster for the Maritime museum. If you have kids I expect the Little Liverpool feature will be a must. All in all - It's the improvement on the Museum of liverpool Life just in that the building and new plaza created are attractions in themselves.

    That is so out of place and does not fit in on the location,even its designer has said it.

    Here's an example.....

    Me as an artist copying a dramatic painting from the 16th century of a group of people and putting a person in a suite from the 20th century into the same painting....it does not work it looks stupid.

    It has also been shortlisted for World Building of the Year 2011 and is in the running for the OpenBuildings People’s Choice Award. But whether you like it or not doesn't really matter - that is just a matter of taste. The fact that it attracted a quarter of a million people in its first month of opening to an area of the city that was previously practically deserted is what is important.

    What's in the Museum of Liverpool might be great but the building is an eyesore and a blot on the view of the fine buildings that stood nobly on the Pier Head before it was built. It had the bad architecture award coming.

    As Howie stated though,that's surely a matter of taste? Each to their own,and I'm just glad to see so many people down there!

    Personally, I don't mind the architecture. I prefer the view of it across the dock than from the Pier Head - looks sleeker, and it is certainly less offensive than its black neighbours. Though, as I said, it is nice to see Mann Island coming back into use.

    It was fairly busy,the other day! I think the space enclosed by the black building,and the museum,give a different atmosphere/perspective to that area,with the stepped area down to the canal,attracting more than a few,just to watch the barges pass! You can the walk through, to the view of the three graces,which is as good as it could be,with the modern buildings behind you,so in effect,two different/seperate open spaces!

    I don't much care for the building tbh and certainly despise the black slabs nearby but I feel I want to defend 'our' museum now! How dare they give it 2nd prize in Carbuncle awards! I've seen a lot worse...........

    I think!

    While no-one would object to modernism and advancement, I'm sure many would prefer something aesthetically pleasing (well, whaddayaknow? Spidey has eaten a dictionary for breakfast)

    I prefer these:

    a quarter of a million people in its first month of opening to an area of the city that was previously practically deserted is what is important.
    Pray do tell where they got that figure from? a large fairground put in that area would have drawn in the crowds as well but 2 years on and it will be slightly remote again....its new its the talk of the town and everyone wants a butchers at it....so when the excitement has died down so will the area.
