Sneak preview of the National Football Museum

I recently had a delightful trip to Liverpool and Manchester, UK where I got the chance to visit the National Football Museum one month before opening.
The behind-the-scenes tour was highly interesting and I can assure you that this museum will raise the standard immensly for all the Football Museums worldwide.
I am especially impressed with the balance in content, the well-motivated choices and the fresh design of both the building and the exhibitions.

Good luck for the opening on July 6th!

Thanks to Kevin Moore, Director of the National Football Museum who generously gave the tour and for a rewarding discussion afterwards.
I can't wait to come back and see the whole thing up and running
