National Museums Liverpool

I have often wondered why the Museums and Art Galleries in Liverpool come under the title of ‘National Museums Liverpool’ and today I have found out why from a post here on Art History News.

I personally don’t remember this but it seems back in the 1980’s when Militant Labour were in charge here in Liverpool there was a real prospect of them wanting to close all the museums and art galleries and sell of the contents.  The one good thing that Margaret Thatcher’s government did for this city was to nationalize the museums and save them for future generations.
