One Client, Twenty Year History

Celebrating twenty years in business inevitably means that you look back at what you’ve achieved and who’s helped to make that possible. And one of the stand-out features of this is realising just how many clients have been working with us for so long.

Take National Museums Liverpool, for example, or NMGM as they were known when we started working together. Here’s a group of museums and galleries we have been working with for the whole of our time in business. And that’s a lot of years and a lot of projects.

During that time we’ve worked at all of their venues too, sometimes on quantitative projects but often on more qualitative challenges surrounding visitor experience, and idea generation and development.

So we’ve developed names for World Museum and Seized! and what used to be National Conservation Centre. We’ve helped in advertising testing/development and gallery design at International Slavery Museum and worked on exhibitions like Plantastic!, Only a Game and The Beat Goes On at World Museum too.

As for the newest venue, Museum of Liverpool (see picture below), we were invited to look round this wearing our hard hat prior to this venue being fully constructed. This in preparation for internal and external work on its branding and marketing, which has proved so successful since its completion.
We’ve worked at Merseyside Maritime Museum, we’ve done projects at Sudley House and The Walker Art Gallery, and we’ve now completed several jobs at Museum of Liverpool too.

Coming right up to date we’ve recently completed a project at Lady Lever Art Gallery, interviewing visitors and potential visitors about the development of the south end galleries at this magnificent venue on The Wirral.

Such a wealth of experience then, for such a supportive and valued client for Park Lane Research. We can only presume that they’re quite partial to the work we do too. Well they have been commissioning work from us since 1994.

Here’s to the next 20 years of working together and here’s a big thank you to National Museums Liverpool.
