Wesołych Świąt, that’s Happy Easter in Polish. Find out this and more Polish Easter event at World Museum (24 March). Mersey Polonia will be on hand to make crafts and talk about how Easter is celebrated in Poland.

Also at World Museum, celebrate the Chinese lantern festival. Come along and discover the history and skill of making beautiful lanterns and create your own to take home (31 March and 1 April).

Sniff out some family fun in our special Easter Rummage, come along to test your skills as a Customs Officer (30 March – 2 April) at Seized! The Border and Customs Uncovered, within the Merseyside Maritime Museum. The Easter Bunny has dropped by and left some treats for visitors; search the ship and look for the chocolate contraband.

Head upstairs to the Merseyside Maritime Museum to make an Easter bunny puppet or an basket, ready to collect those Easter treats (27 & 28 March).

Get crafty at the International Slavery Museum in our hands on activity, Faces of Change (24, 31 March, 7, 8 & 14 April). Make and take home your very own brilliant badge to pay tribute to freedom fighters of the past, in this family craft workshop.
