Eureka! The National Children's Museum

Have you been to Eureka! The Children’s Museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire? If not and you have children under 11, then you really should if you are ever nearby.

What can you do at Eureka! The National Children’s Museum?

There are over 400 interactive exhibits for children to interact with. In addition, there is a creative space (arts and crafts) and a theatre space. They also put on extra activities. On one of our visits, we saw an interactive storytelling session of Room on the Broom (by Eureka! Staff), which was great for preschool-age children.

The staff are amazing with kids and they are always on hand in the creative space. We’ve also seen a couple in the town square area pretending to be robbers and police which the kids seemed to love. In the pretend town square there is a bank with a working cash machine (not real cash), post office, supermarket, road works, car garage and a house with all the rooms you’d expect.

Kids can find out how their body works in a bright and modern area with a dentist, baby clinic area and more. It’s a great place for kids to learn without even realising that they are learning. There is a great outdoor area too, complete with a large sandpit.
