This is a great place to bring your grandchildren, with plenty for them to enjoy and also to learn. You can bring a picnic which you can eat in designated indoor/outdoor areas, but there's also a superb cafe.

I went a few years ago and it hasn't changed really. It is good but could do with a bit of updating I think now. I won't be rushing back. It's not cheap.More

Hi Mark, thanks for visiting Eureka! and leaving a review. It’s disappointing to hear that you felt the museum needed some updating, especially since we have worked really hard over the past few years in terms of updating the oldest sections of Eureka! such as...More

Lots of colourful interactive exhibits which delight most under ten's. The challenge is to provide activities for older children.

I went there with three 5-year old boys and they loved it. You can easily spend 4/5 hrs with all the different activities and experiences. It is a very well-organised and well-though museum. Staff at reception were very kind and helpful. We brought out own...More

Great value for money at this place and the more your kids grow the different things they interact with so never get bored. Miles better than the standard Play centres.
