We had a couple of hours to spare during a recent visit to Liverpool and went to the Maritime Museum which was excellent. We could have stayed longer but needed to leave for another commitment. Will go again another time as very intetesting.

This is the place to go to get an idea of Liverpool's history. I enjoyed the ship building exhibition the most. Fascinating to see all about Titanic, Lusitania and many more.

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
