Book visit

We’re open for pre-booked visits

We’re committed to the health and well-being of our staff and visitors. Our priority is to ensure that everyone feels safe and comfortable during their time with us. As a result, the following measures are still in place at Eureka!:

  • We continue to limit the number of people in the museum, to avoid crowds.
  • We ask that all adult visitors wear a face mask indoors, unless exempt or when eating or drinking in our cafe.
  • All visits must be booked in advance.

We know you’ll have loads of questions so read our FAQs, but here are a few really important bits that you need to know:


Will I need an NHS Covid Passport to visit?

No, we will not be requiring NHS Covid pass or negative lateral flow test as we have reduced our visitor capacity further to ensure we remain under the limit specified in the government guidance.

This does however mean that there will be fewer tickets available, so please ensure you book your visit in advance.

Do I still need to wear a face mask?

Yes, we are asking visitors to wear face coverings, unless exempt or when eating or drinking in our cafe.

Children do not need to wear face-coverings.

Will we still be able to play with everything?

Yes, pretty much. All the main galleries and interactives are open, but our picnic train carriage is still closed for the time being. We’ve ramped up all our cleaning protocols and are even using a disinfectant “Fogging” system to ensure interactives can be played with.
