Primary visits

We make learning memorable

We combine education with enjoyment, resulting in effective learning and lasting memories. An educational trip here is a hands-on, fun-packed day that children will never forget.

Bring your primary class to Eureka! for a trip they’ll never forget!

Guided by you, students get hands-on and explore the museum. You get a focused hour slot in one of our galleries followed by an hour to explore the rest of the museum. A great opportunity to let imaginations roam free. Choose your gallery focus hour from:
