We’re reopening on 8th August!

We open our doors to a changed world, and we’ve changed with it – but not so much that you won’t recognise us anymore, promise!
We know you’ll have loads of questions so read our FAQs, but here are a few really important changes that you need to know about:

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 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.

I’m an annual pass holder – will my pass be extended?

Yes, we will be extending annual passes to add on any days that you missed out on due to the closure. If you bought your tickets between 1 April 2019 and 20 March 2020, we’ll automatically extend your annual pass to add any days missed onto the expiry date. If you gave us your email address when you bought tickets, we’ll email you to let you know your new expiry date.
