The Museum of Liverpool enables families to discover the global significance of the city. On your day out with kids you can explore how the Port and its people have shaped the city.
To help keep little explorers busy and engaged, you can download and follow the Liver bird trail round the museum. The ‘when I was little activity’ is an activity for young children aged three to seven and their grandparents (or older relatives) whereby families borrow a backpack from the welcome desk and take on the tasks and challenges located inside. The backpack will contain a range of activities that support you in exploring the museum, helping relatives share their memories with the younger generation about their own childhood and objects they come across in the museum displays. Children will then write or draw their findings in the album which you can keep as a keepsake.
You can also collect a free, timed ticket for Little Liverpool from the welcome desk and enjoy a hands-on gallery specially for visitors under the age of six. This hands on fantasy world facilitates learning inside the gallery and they can create their own mini Liverpool. Inside Little Liverpool you can have a play in this interactive water feature surrounded by key landmarks. Sail the boats, run the little cars through the tunnels and of course fish for pretend marine creatures. Learn about how to keep the waters clean and look after the environment for the future. Head to the letter stations on the dock wall which features an A to Z of objects in an interactive exhibit. Babies can also experience the joy of a visit in Little Liverpool. The Liver bird’s nest is a multi-sensory pod for babies and pre-walkers where you can take off their shoes and relax in the nest with their baby while they play and learn.
