The launch of two new events spaces within the historic World Museum comes almost 160 years since it first opened on William Brown Street in Liverpool city centre.
National Museums Liverpool has added a new 20-capacity boardroom to its portfolio, as well as the Lower Horseshoe - a 73 square metre exhibition gallery space - with exclusive use available over the next three years.
The Lower Horseshoe will open for private events from conferences to weddings, with capacity for up to 600 guests.
It has previously been used for exhibitions and events such as the 2018 blockbuster China's First Emperor and the Terracotta Warriors.
Head of events at Hosted by National Museums Liverpool, Katie Roberts, said the two additional events spaces will add to "fantastic" locations at World Museum.
These include the ground floor Sir Richard Foster Wing, a newly refurbished aquarium and a planetarium.
"The Museum itself is steeped in history, advancing and adapting over the years to become what it is today, particularly following its redevelopment after suffering a huge fire during World War II," Roberts said.
"For us to be able to open it up to delegates and guests as a place to enjoy events is a real privilege and showcases some of the incredible heritage that Liverpool has to offer."
The new spaces add to Hosted by National Museums Liverpool’s existing portfolio of events spaces across eight venues within the city and its surrounding areas.
Revenue generated from the new spaces will go back into National Museums Liverpool.
