VGM Liverpool or as we have named it THE VERY GOOD MUSEUM

Blimey, we have found a new favourite, the Victoria gallery and museum in Liverpool has got to be THE most informative place in the whole wide world. To go along with this title, it also has THE most friendliest of staff… OFFICIAL … We need to go back to follow a trail of information for our other blog pages. We discovered so much information we are going to be kept entertained for a good many weekends 🙂

    • The two chairs, 🙂 each room has a series of chairs with quirky cushions on… these two back to back just caught my eye somewhere just to sit and take in the art work… I could just see one of your pieces hanging on display in a couple of years time 🙂

    • Hiya Derrick, it is an amazing place.. most museums you get a card at the side of a painting with a bland few sentences.. this place is so different we came away with loads to look up and start researching for our other site. Their was a Lady floating around the rooms on hand to help us more. She was full of enthuasiasm, you could tell everyone was proud of their gallery… great to see

    • It would be worth the air fare 😉 no huge trees though but it is part of the Liverpool University.

  1. Thank you so much for your wonderful write up about the VG+M. We are always happy when new people discover us- everyone works very hard producing and presenting high quality, quirky exhibitions. Glad you like my cushions too! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kirsty Hall, VG+M Education Officer

    • Hiya Kirsty, Since out visit Angie hasn’t stop reading the history of your gallery. Names like Waterhouse, Tate, Hartley following their family history has been fascinating and we are only just scratching the surface 🙂 and as for the cushions they are worthy of their own visit. Cant wait for our next visit and see what else we can discover about our area.

  2. I will be calling on you for future gallery talks then, you will know more than us soon! If you are interested in learning more about Alfred Waterhouse, one of our excellent volunteers retired History teacher Martin is giving a talk about Waterhouse and our building and other buildings he designed on campus, in wider Liverpool and beyond. It is on Wed 16th May, 12.30 – 1.15pm. He has given the talk once before and it is fascinating – he presents it with loads of photos of Waterhouse builldings, some of which are not usually open to the public but he managed to talk his way into some of them!

    • Unfortunately I won’t be able to get across for the Waterhouse talk, but I know Angie is hoping to get over if her plans work out. Architects are my thing to and would of been great to hear more about such a man as Waterhouse. What a visionary he must of been in his day, they must of been exciting times to live in if you were an architect.

      • Ooooooh thinking about it I cant miss Martins talk on this subject, I shall try and get the day off work and come across to see the photo’s. If it is ok I shall send an email to your gmail account nearer the time.

    • Hiya Sally 🙂 i,ll have to dig around the photo,s and see if I have one of the cushions… they were awesome…my missus loves cushions in fact I think if their was a world shortage in cushions we would clean up we have that many.. but she missed them 🙂

    • Hiya Ristin, loved your Praca do Leal Senado excellent as always you should have a look at the photo from the TATE i put up a couple of months back…now that was a chair 🙂

    • Hiya Olga, I thought the ideas running through your blog were excellent looking forward to following your work 🙂

    • You,ll have to try and get across and visit, park in the met cathedral car park.. and have a wander around that too. 🙂 it,s been a while since we went to southport keep meaning to go to the airshow.
