A good afternoon out with the children aged 7 and 2. There was a craft project which they both enjoyed. The little Liverpool part was very good although you need to closely supervise the young ones around the water activities, you need to get a free ticket for a timed slot for this area as you arrive but it was...

There's something for everyone's taste: video, audio, touch/smell exhibitions, and the more traditional formats. The recordings, photos and items donated from local families to showcase the city's history are particularly touching, and add to the sense of... More
