Early years play area
The first floor of Merseyside Maritime Museum is closed for the afternoon of Thursday 23 October and all day on Friday 24 October to allow for essential gallery refurbishment. The Battle of the Atlantic and Life at Sea galleries (including the Derbyshire and Hello Sailor displays) and the Sea Urchins play area will be closed on these dates.
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.
