If you are looking for somewhere to take the kids over half term, here would be ideal.
The museum is currently running a life at sea interactive story session and follow up activities.
When I went along I had a 9 year old, 5 year old and 3 year old and it was pitched beautifully to include all of them.
The story follows the life of Toby as he embarks on a life at sea, how he feels and everything he sees along the way.
It gives the children the opportunity to find out about life at sea but in a way suitable for them. Great stuff!
The museum itself is free to enter and is a brilliant place to start explaining war and artefacts to kids. It is a good mix of history and hands on to keep different ages entertained.
Don't forget to watch the Horrible Histories film all about the war and rationing, pitched perfectly for little ones.
One of our best experiences is visiting the air shard which is really high and gives you a fab view over Manchester. You can even see Coronation Street!!!
The cafe serves nice food, not too pricey and the kids can pick a ration pack with 5 items too!
If you fancy a day out to keep the kids, and you entertained then definitely try here. You will love it!
