Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in Liverpool during the Second World War? Join a member of our education team and explore what life was like on the British home front in Liverpool through handling real and replica objects. Look at images of war ravaged Liverpool, find out what it was like to be sent away from home as an evacuee, and how Liverpool became the most heavily bombed UK city after London. Find out about evacuation, the Blitz, rations and more as you get the chance to handle real and replica objects in this engaging and informative experience.

This event is part of our Half term event series.
