From finding out about the Victorians to getting a lesson in decorum, the Museum of Liverpool has got some top picks this month.

Hands on with the Victorians runs at 10.30am and 1.30pm on April 6, 7 and 8 at the museum based on the Pier Head in Liverpool.

Get hands-on with the past as you get the chance to look at, touch, and find out about objects from the Victorian period, when Liverpool and Britain changed dramatically.

Victorian craft sessions will also run on these dates at 11am and 1pm when visitors can make a thaumatrope, a popular Victorian optical toy that was the predecessor of modern films and animation.

Also on Saturday, The Temperance Society features Seized! The Border and Customs Uncovered at 12.30pm, 1.45pm and 3pm.

A stern and very proper Victorian pair will stroll around the Museum interacting with visitors who may need a lesson in deportment and decorum.

There is no need to book for these events, just drop-in.

There’s also the Little Liverpool gallery – a hands-on fantasy world especially for children under the age of six to play and learn.

The museum is free to enter and is open daily from 10am until 5pm.
