This Maritime Museum workshop is perfect for classes studying a local history topic as they will explore Liverpool’s connections to the world of smuggling and trade through its position as one of the top ports in Britain.

Students will be introduced to objects from the Maritime Museum’s extensive collection of items seized by the Border Force and the stories behind them, be they endangered species, fakes or concealment of illegal goods.
