Early years play area
Sea Urchins is a drop-in play area for families with young children, age five and under.
The free maritime-themed activities on offer include costumes, activity sheets and story books. Young visitors could dress up as a lobster, a mermaid, a sailor or even a pirate for some seafaring adventures - without ever leaving dry land!
Sea Urchins is on the first floor of Merseyside Maritime Museum, at the end of the Life at Sea gallery.
