We’re not like other museums. At Eureka! nothing is trapped inside a glass cabinet.
Located in Halifax, West Yorkshire, we’re the only fully interactive museum totally dedicated to children aged 0-11 anywhere in the UK. We welcome the weird and wonderful questions children ask and work hard to provide some of the answers.
A fun-packed family day out in Yorkshire
We have over 400 interactive, hands-on exhibits designed to inspire children to find out about themselves and the world around them.
We have six unique galleries to discover, each with a different theme to explore. Each area is packed with equipment to explore, activities to do, and buttons to press. And we have plenty of family events through out the year, so from science experiments to interactive shows; it’s a different Eureka! experience every time.
As well as educational sessions for schools and groups.
Nursery, childcare and venue hire
Visit us to discover, imagine, experiment and above all have fun!
We’re just off the M62, between Leeds and Manchester.

Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning... They have to play with what they know to be true in order to find out more, and then they can use what they learn in new forms of play." - Fred Rogers
