The maritime museum is a must for everybody. Lots to see and suitable for ages. My favourite is the section with paintings of Liverpool in its hey day.

This is a well presented view of the history of Maritime Liverpool . The Battle of the Atlantic is of particular interest also the history of the White Star Line .

there's plenty of interactive exhibits, plus the usual hidden item trail you get in museums. not sure about crafty things as I wasn't really looking for them, but there should be plenty to keep them entertained
