I enjoyed the museum. Lots of ships outside. Good sections on The Titanic, Mauritania etc with models, artefacts and such like. Good displays. The Slavery Museum on the other hand was a travesty. A pathetic afterthought. Avoid. Pleasant cafe.

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
