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.
  • All visits must be booked in advance.

You can read our FAQs for lots more info, but here are a few really important bits that you need to know:


Do I still need to wear a face mask?

As per the most recent Government guidelines, it is a personal choice as to whether you wear a face covering or not. This personal choice has also been extended to our team, so some staff will be wearing face masks and others may choose not to.

Children do not need to wear face-coverings.

Do I need to book in advance?

Will we still be able to play with everything?
