Make time to visit one of our museums and galleries which have a host of activities running alongside the big Giants weekend. 

1/ Why not make your own little girl giant during special Gallery Giants craft sessions at the Walker Art Gallery. From Thursday to Saturday join us from 1-4pm to create your own memento. Sessions are free,  1-4pm.

2/ Stock up on Giant goodies at World Museum. We have a selection of merchandise for sale which commemorates this magical weekend including mugs, books. official programme and gorgeous prints. Gifts are also available online including this amazing little girl giant coaster.

3/ Visit our brand new exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool. “First World War: Reflecting on Liverpool’s Home Front” opened on Tuesday and explores some of the lesser-known stories of the First World War. Did everyone rush to support the war effort? Was every woman empowered by her war-time experience? Just how generous were Liverpool citizens? Free entry.

4/ Watch the Giants in style in our restaurant on the fourth floor of Merseyside Maritime Museum. The Maritime Dining Room is probably the best seat in the house for viewing the Giants as they say their farewell to Liverpool on Sunday 27 July. Open from 10am we will be serving a full English breakfast at just £6.95 per person including tea or coffee. Our mouth-watering traditional Sunday roast will be available from 11.30am. Spaces are limited so booking is essential, to reserve your table please call 0151 478 4056 More details here.

5/ Listen to First World War songs at the Museum of Liverpool on Friday 25 May from 2-3pm. Free entry. Join Choirmaster Bernie Whelan and her music therapy choir for a performance of songs from a century ago.

The Giant Spectacular takes place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 25-27 July in locations across Liverpool city centre.

There are slight alterations to opening times at the Museum of Liverpool this weekend. Check here for details.
