A hands-on history of the docks

A family enjoying the Docklands Playtime area

Mudlarks is an interactive space for our younger visitors and their carers, introducing the stories told within the museum in a fun and stimulating environment designed to support children's learning and development from babies up to 8 years old. Free to visit. Try cargo loading in Tip the Clipper, explore the Victorian docks in Docklands Playtime or become a builder in our building role-play area using giant bricks and wheelbarrows. This gallery is free but families must have a ticket, which can be obtained either through booking online following the link to the right, or by collecting a ticket from the front desk on arrival.
