    • When you drop anchor at Merseyside Maritime Museum don’t miss Seized! The Borders and Customs uncovered - a permanent gallery unveiling attempts at smuggling and tax evasion that have kept our Customs Officers on their toes over the years! The exhibition focuses on detective work, fighting crime, patrolling frontiers, catching criminals, undercover surveillance and an insight into the motives of the bad guys. Visitors can see items used for drugs smuggling such as carved African statues and garden gnomes, a chilling collection of smuggled weapons, and an emotive display of tourist souvenirs made out of endangered species.
