The International Slavery Museum offers a range of activities, sessions and resources for education and community groups of all ages. The museum runs popular handling sessions that promote an understanding of transatlantic slavery and life in West Africa from key stage 2. Activities that explore African heritage through arts, crafts, storytelling and music are available from early years. We also have a workshop specifically about Liverpool’s connections with slavery, suitable for those in year 9 and above.
Please note that a charge has been introduced for the some of the workshops at the International Slavery Museum. The rest of the workshops are free, but must still be booked in advance.
