Eureka! The National Children's Museum

Eureka! The National Children’s Museum is an extraordinary fun-packed day out for families.

We are the only fully interactive museum totally dedicated to children aged 0–11 anywhere in the UK. Nothing is behind a glass cabinet! We have over 400 interactive, hands-on exhibits designed to inspire enquiring minds to find out about themselves and the world around them.

Discover six unique zones each with a different theme to explore. Make some noise and explore how music is created, experience the world of work and take over a child-sized town, and step inside giant body parts. Each zone is packed with equipment to explore, activities to do, and buttons to press. And with plenty of events throughout the year, from science experiments to interactive shows; it’s a different Eureka! experience every time.

Pay once, and get in free for a year with an Annual Pass.
