Eureka! The National Children's Museum details...

One of the great places to go in West Yorkshire is Eureka! The National Children’s Museum where all the family can experience an extraordinarily fun-packed day out. This museum in Halifax is the only fully interactive museum totally dedicated to children aged 0-11 years anywhere in the UK, where kids are encouraged to experiment and discover, get hands-on and investigate for themselves – nothing is behind a glass cabinet!

Try out six colourful zones each filled with hundreds of interactive exhibits designed to inspire young minds to find out about themselves and the world around them. Delve into over 400 interactive, hands-on exhibits designed to engross enquiring minds; the kids will be encouraged and helped along by a team of talented Enablers who are on hand throughout the museum. Discover the unique zones, enjoy the extensive grounds and the creativity space. Each zone has a different theme to explore. Check out the ‘All about Me’ gallery where kids can investigate the body and science when they step inside giant body parts; make some noise in the Sound Garden where you find out how music is made; focus on the world of work in the Living & Working Together area and watch the kids take over a child-sized town.

Inspiring events are held throughout the year, from science experiments to interactive shows, bursting with exciting fun and Eureka! adventure.

Make time for to refreshments in the fantastic light and bright café and gift shop where the kids can recharge their batteries before they get on with more interactive things to do.

The museum offers ‘Pay once’ tickets that give families free of charge entry for the following 12 months after their first visit, making it a great value day out. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times and there is onsite pay and display car parking.
