1.8M for ISM

20th March 2008
The Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) has announced an investment of 1.8 million in the International Slavery Museum, which will enable National Museums Liverpool to take forward its ambitious plans for the development of the attraction.

The funding will help the International Slavery Museum to extend into the historic Grade I listed Dock Traffic Office adjacent to its current location within the Merseyside Maritime Museum. The building will be home to an extended exhibition space as well as a new research space for the museum, a public archive, learning suite, and a community zone.
