Inspiration

Eureka! Halifax

The National Children’s Museum is the only fully interactive museum in the UK which is totally dedicated to children, offering an extraordinary, fun-packed day out for all. Nothing is behind a glass cabinet, so kids can literally get their hands on everything!

Over two floors, there are six unique zones filled with more than 400 interactive exhibits packed with equipment to explore, activities to do and buttons to press - all designed to inspire and expand young minds to find out about the world around them.

The ‘All About Me’ zone offers families a chance to learn all about bodies; how amazing we all are and what we’re made of - there’s even an opportunity to peer up a giant nose and step inside a giant mouth!

Another zone, dedicated to ‘Living & Working’ allows families to explore a child-sized town whilst they experience the world of work.

The Spark gallery offers a chance to experience a programme of exhibitions, workshops and pop-up activities, learning all about interactive tech and the latest in digital art from around the world. The Creativity Space and Desert Discovery and SoundGarden are zones dedicated to under 5’s, offering sensory play, arts and crafts.

With plenty of events throughout the year, from science experiments to interactive shows; it’s a different Eureka! experience every time.

To make things even better, if you pay once, you get in free for a whole year with an annual pass!
