Nature’s Stage

Easter Fun supported by HariboSaturday 5 – Sunday 27 April 2014

Wake up – it’s springtime! Come and join us to watch nature’s stage spring into life across our galleries. Join us on a bear hunt, see what happens when the Spring Fairy brings sleepy nature back to life and take a walk in the Eureka! jungle. Includes storytelling and animal handling on certain days.

Eureka! Easter fun is being supported by HARIBO, with competitions to win HARIBO Easter treats throughout the holiday and special appearances from Goldbear over Easter weekend.

We expect to get quite busy on some days, particularly in the run up to Easter weekend, so here is a bit of info about visiting Eureka! during busy periods.
