We’re reopening (again)

We’re getting ready to open our doors again from Friday 21st May, and we can’t wait to seeyou again!

We’ve extending Annual Passes to cover the closure period, just as we did during the last lockdown. No need to do anything need to do – we’ve got this covered and you can just go ahead and book.

The world has changed and so have we – but not so much that you won’t recognise us!
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 I need to wear a face mask?

The Government has made it compulsory for adults to wear a face-covering when visiting indoor attractions, including Eureka!, unless you are exempt.

Children do not need to wear face-coverings.

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.
