Description

We invite you to join us for the Age Friendly Museums North West Showcase event in the The Leggate Lecture Theatre, Victoria Gallery and Museum, Liverpool on the 19th September. The day will be full of inspiring examples of how North West museums are improving services to engage older people in our communities through developing partnerships, using their collections and enhancing their spaces.
