It's largely on commercial shipping. There's lots to learn here. The section on the slave trade is generally quite well done.

Definitely the best museum in Liverpool (for my personal testes) it’s reach in history of the town origins with trade through the docks, extending its covers to areas of slavery and naval tourism. A must see in town!!

There is so much to see in this museum. You would need a good couple of hours. The models of the ships are brilliant. So much information to take in. Free entry. Would recommend this as a place to visit.

there's plenty of interactive exhibits, plus the usual hidden item trail you get in museums. not sure about crafty things as I wasn't really looking for them, but there should be plenty to keep them entertained
