Attraction Information

Fill your school holidays and weekends at your favourite science centre, Eureka! The National Children's Museum. Get stuck into a wide range of interactive activities from storytelling sessions to dinosaur experiences, and opportunities to learn about pathology, microbiology and more...

If your kids are curious about the world around them, Eureka! The National Children’s Museum is a must-visit! 

Things to do
Based in West Yorkshire, this is UK’s only fully interactive museum totally dedicated to kids aged 0-11. This extraordinary fun-packed day is filled with lots of fun and creativity space!

Ever wondered what it would feel like to examine a huge nose? What about the science of sound? Science is all around us and unlike other museums you can explore it ALL! There are six unique zones to discover, each filled with hundreds of interactive exhibits designed to inspire enquiring minds to find out about themselves and learn through play. This play-based experience for kids helps the little ones with their emotional, intellectual, physical, social and creative development.

The interactive educational museum is an educational charity that focuses on families having fun! You'll get to meet a talented team of Enablers who are always on hand throughout the museum to help you get the most out of your visit.

Once your museum visit is over, you can purchase a curious little momento from the gift shop!
