Must we visit in groups of 6 or less?

Do I need to book in advance?

Yes – Absolutely. Every visitor to Eureka! will need to pre-book.
Even if you are an existing annual pass holder, you still need to pre-book your visit. This is the way we can ensure visitor numbers are limited at a safe level for social distancing.

Will I need to wear a face mask?

Will we still be able to play with everything?

Yes, pretty much. There’s a limited number of smaller areas we’ve kept closed for now, but all the main galleries and interactives are open. We’ve ramped up all our cleaning protocols and are even using a disinfectant “Fogging” system to ensure interactives can be played with. At this time our Creativity Space and the picnic train carriage remain closed.
