In William Brown Street, Liverpool, stands the World Museum. With collections from all around the world it is a grand place to spend a few hours when it rains.
Built in 1859 it was the first of the range of Classical style building that would form William Brown Street. Looking like a Roman temple with Corinthian columns and a munumental set of steps it is a splendid example of the civic pride in one of the great 19th century commercial cities. During World War 2 an incendary bomb destoyed the interior of the museum and it was fifteen years later that the building would be opened to the public following the rebuilding of it. Since then the collections have grown and the museum has expanded considerably, it was re-opened in 2005 as the World Museum.
