Eureka – Halifax

“At Eureka! we love to play and learn. We’re a fun, interactive children’s museum and educational charity based in Halifax, West Yorkshire, where children play to learn and grown-ups learn to play. We have hundreds of interactive, hands-on exhibits designed to inspire children aged 0 to 11 to learn about themselves and the world around them through play and discovery. We regularly run special themed events for the whole family, as well as educational sessions for schools and groups.”

My sons love Eureka, it will always be their first choice for a day out – apart from visiting a top shop of course. Lots of hands on activities and learning about Science – and don’t forget the talking robot!
