We can't imagine a world without Eureka!

While we were closed, Zoom the robot had no one to talk to. Archimedes got really smelly without his daily baths. Most of our staff were tucked away at home, and missed all the noise and laughter of the children.

Without visitors, Eureka! was just a building.

Now we’re open again, Archimedes has been made to take a bath (phew!) and Zoom is his usual chatty self… singing and talking with all our lovely visitors who have come back to see us.

We still need your help

During our closure period, not only was Eureka! oddly quiet and still but all income was completely stopped.

Your visits remain our only source of regular income. We receive no other funding. We missed 140,000 of you coming through the doors between March and August, and that’s an awful lot of missing income – about £1million.

With reduced opening hours and capacity limits on the number of visitors allowed in the building, we need to make difficult choices to safeguard Eureka! in the long term. Unfortunately, like many other visitor attractions, that means losing some of our team.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Eureka! The National Children's Museum. to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Eureka! The National Children's Museum. we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Eureka! The National Children's Museum. to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Eureka! The National Children's Museum. will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Eureka! The National Children's Museum. receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
