An area in Liverpool known initially for dockside warehouses and its utility in the growth of the Industrial Revolution, Albert Dock has become known in recent times more for both its heritage-listed buildings and for its multiple tourist attractions.
Tate Liverpool is a large and exclusive art gallery in a converted warehouse, with a collection of pieces from the 1500's to present day. Another gallery of significance is the Merseyside Maritime Museum, which chronicles Liverpool's involvement in seafaring, including the slave trade and involvement with the Titanic.
Finally, the most important place to see in Albert Dock, if you're a traveler who truly appreciates rock and roll history, is The Beatles Story. This isn't some museum in the home of one of these icons, but it's still a genuine experience, with access to lots of memorabilia and Beatles-related artifacts, as well as interactive exhibits. If you're in Liverpool or in nearby Manchester, it behooves you to spend a day at Albert Dock.
