Liverpool fans from across the world will soon be able to get up close to never-before-seen pieces of the Reds' history, when a brand new museum experience launches at Anfield next week.

On Wednesday, October 23, the LFC Story will officially open its doors to supporters, with a new interactive museum housing some of the club's most important artefacts - through from its conception to the modern day era.

The memorabilia, some of which has previously never been seen, includes Bill Shankly's passport, which contains border stamps and visas for every destination visited by the Reds on their European campaigns, effectively taking the club from Reykjavik in 1964 to the triumph of 1973 in Moenchengladbach.


As well as this, Shankly's private farewell dinner menu will also be on display; the humorous menu put together by the players includes courses such as 'Och ay, it's a load of bull (the medallion of beef)', which attempts to mask the fact that they were very sad to see him leave.

The collection will even have a copy of one of the first media articles about a fixture played at Anfield, in 1890, on display - not for Liverpool, however, but for the Everton v West Bromwich Albion match.

Visitors to the LFC Story will be joined throughout their journey around the exhibition by Liverpool legend and former captain Phil Thompson, who is the official voice of the interactive headsets.

Thompson said: "Liverpool FC has a wealth of history unlike any other club.

"It's only right that some of the most important pieces from the past as well as from the modern day are displayed at the home of the Reds, and it's fantastic that the new museum is bigger and better than ever before.

"I'm honoured to be the official guide of the LFC Story, and I hope the LFC family from across the world will enjoy getting up close to the club like never before."
