  • Disabled Access
  • Family

Nothing is behind a glass cabinet! We have over 400 interactive, hands-on exhibits designed to inspire enquiring minds to find out about themselves and the world around them. Discover 6 unique zones each with a different theme to explore. Make some noise and explore how music is created, experience the world of work and take over a child-sized town, and step inside giant body parts. Each zone is packed with equipment to explore, activities to do, and buttons to press. And with plenty of events throughout the year, from science experiments to interactive shows; it’s a different Eureka! experience every time.

Eureka! has decided to maintain reduced capacity, pre-booked ticket entry only, and recommends face masks (unless exempt) until otherwise announced, in accordance with government guidance and industry best practice issued by the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.

Pay once, and get in free for a year with an Annual Pass.
