A "sea gull" near the Mersey River

Find the point of view, from where this building resembles to a Sea Gull. Splendid! Also, the exhibition inside is well-organised! Unique items from an unrepetable city!

We were hoping to visit the museum, but it has been closed for some time and isn't likely to open in the very near future, so we were quite disappointed. But it is in a good location and they are doing a lot to improve facilities and what is being shown, so when it reopens, it should be good.
