Groups may like to combine a story box teacher led session with a visit to Little Liverpool. The Little Liverpool gallery is a hands-on world especially for children in early years and key stage 1 to play and learn. Inside the gallery our youngest visitors can create their own Liverpool - a city where they are in charge. This session is facilitated by a member of of the Museum of Liverpool's Education team.
