Find out more about the dangerous world of smuggling and contraband goods in these events and activities.

Whether they involve tracking down suspicious packages full of contraband goods, investigating the taxing world of tax or protecting endangered species, all of these events are based on the 'Seized! The Border and Customs uncovered' gallery at Merseyside Maritime Museum.

Younger visitors can download Matt's gallery trail (pdf), and see if you can find him when you visit.
