The World Museum in Liverpool Announces Free Doctor Who Events

The World Museum, the oldest museum in Liverpool, has announced a series of free events as part of the exhibition, Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder. You can build your own TARDIS, play a virtual reality game, or make your own kooky Time Lord costume.

The wider exhibition explores the science behind the show, taking fans behind the scenes with props, monsters, and never-before-seen artefacts from the entire history of the series.

Fiona Philpott, Director of Exhibitions at National Museums Liverpool, said:

Doctor Who Worlds of Wonder has seen families and fans of all ages making the trip to Liverpool to experience this landmark exhibition, alongside the bugs, sea creatures and dinosaurs also on display at World Museum. Running until 30th October, there’s still plenty of time to get your ticket and join us for this exciting series of events throughout the summer holidays.”

While some events have already been and gone, there are still things to enjoy later this month.
