Love this place 5 out of 5 stars

This museum had a great selection of activities. One of the main ones we went to was little Liverpool: aimed at 0-3, it has free entry (tickets at the reception) our get to experience interactive play zones, play with boats and ferries in the water. Use fishing rods to collect rubbish out of the sea.
