As a kid in Liverpool, many a wet sunday afternoon was spent here and in the Walker Art Gallery. On a recent trip back to Liverpool I thought it would be interesting to view through adult eyes. The interpretation and the way the exhibits are displayed now is very different - very much more family friendly, and that is indeed a good thing. Lots of families enjoying all sorts of different exhibits and displays, and even picnicking!!! At the moment there is a special 'Magic' exhibition on display featuring fairy tales with interactive rooms and activities. Plenty of volunteers based in certain areas to encourage questions and a hands-on experience. The coffee shop was well attended but we were served quickly and prices were good. All in all, an excellent 2half hours spent revisiting an old haunt which has been given a new twist. Don't be put off by the term museum ........ go, and give it a try! Free entry, lockers available should the weather be bad and you are well wrapped up, with a £1 refundable fee.
