However there is still plenty to keep our youngest visitors entertained in the rest of the museum - take a look at our What's on page to find out about each day's activities.

A Clore Learning Space

The Little Liverpool gallery is a hands-on fantasy world especially for children under the age of six to play and learn. Inside the gallery our youngest visitors can create their own Liverpool - a city where they are in charge.

Up to 50 people at a a time can enjoy the gallery - a maximum of 35 children and 15 adults (please do not leave your children unattended). Entry is by a free ticket, which can be collected from the Welcome Desk on the day of your visit.

Each session in the Little Liverpool gallery lasts about 30 minutes. There are usually seven sessions each day, starting at 10.15am, 11am, 11.45am, 1.15pm, 2pm, 2.45pm and 3.45pm. However the session times may occasionally change to allow for essential maintenance work so please check sessions times at the welcome desk on the day of your visit.

If Little Liverpool is full when you arrive then look out for Winnie the spider in our other galleries to find lots of things to do specially for the very young.
