Visiting Eureka! without children

Lone adults

Information for people wanting to visit Eureka! either alone or as part of a group that doesn't include children.

During normal business hours, adults can only visit Eureka! if they are with a child or children.

Eureka! is designed for children and their families to play and learn together, so ensuring that our museum is safe and family-friendly is important to us. We therefore do not allow adults to visit without children during our opening hours, unless in exceptional circumstances.

So what if you want to visit without children?

If you want to come to Eureka! to reminisce or just explore our museum without children, you’re welcome to do so during one of our regular adults-only Lates evenings. Keep an eye out for them in our What’s on section, or you can be the first to hear about upcoming adults-only events by subscribing to our Lates email list.

For any other reason, you must call 01422 330069 in advance to discuss the reason for your visit. If we are able to accommodate you, we’ll make arrangements for your visit. Please note that you’ll be asked to sign in during your visit.

What about the museum grounds?

Adults are welcome in our grounds, though you must adhere to our site rules, including:

  • No smoking, including all e-cigarettes
  • No dogs, apart from support dogs
  • No alcohol consumption, or other anti-social behaviours
  • No photography without permission
