Essential guides

Whether you are coming on a general visit or taking part in a workshop, we strongly recommend that you download the following information sheets. 

These handy guides contain practical information to help teachers and group leaders prepare for a visit, including lunch rooms, safety information and sample risk assessments. 


Workshops are free of charge and usually link to the national curriculum through our collections and displays. Many sessions are led by a member of our team, while some are self-led. Booking well in advance is advised. Popular topics include local history, the influence of the River Mersey, the 1960s, and the city's iconic buildings. It's also a great place to examine Victorian Liverpool and court housing. Younger groups can pre-book the hands-on children's gallery Little Liverpool.
