Slavery museum gets £1.8m grant

Liverpool's International Slavery Museum is to receive £1.8 million from the Northwest Regional Development Agency.

It will be used to extend the museum into the historic Grade I-listed Dock Traffic Office next to its home on Liverpool's waterfront.

The building will house an extended exhibition and a new research space, a public archive, learning suite and a 'community zone'.

NWDA director of tourism James Berresford said: "This development will mean that the museum is better positioned to attract an even bigger and more diverse audience and it will raise the profile of the city as a distinctive and culturally exciting place to visit."
