The museum is child friendly with lot of interactives that bring history to life and an engaging programme of activities for young people to play and learn. Book a free place in Little Liverpool to introduce your youngest children to the wonders of the Museum of Liverpool.

Exhibits showcase popular culture and tackle social, historical and contemporary issues of Liverpool’s region in an accessible, engaging manner. More than 6,000 objects bring Liverpool’s incredible heritage to life, celebrating thousands of years of the city’s achievements.
