Summer Fun at Eureka

23 Jul - 04 Sep

This summer at Eureka! you can expect something new every single day over the school holidays…

The play experts at #TeamEureka! have planned 44 days of performers, activities and, well, FUN!

Each day they’ll be joined by a different performer or show-host: Learn the basics of domestic plumbing and make skyscrapers out of spaghetti…  Work on constructions together as a team, as well as experiment and build your own Kapla designs!

Be entertained by showman extraordinaire Gacko, be enthralled by tales from Ian Douglas the Storyteller, and have your mind blown by Professor Pumpernickel, everyone’s favourite blue-haired scientist.

Dinosaur Experiences will be roaming the grounds on selected dates this August, so if you’ve ever wanted to meet a baby dinosaur (or keep a safe distance from a Triceratops) you don’t want to miss them!

The Great Mandavi will entertain the crowds with his circus skills and fine moustache, plus the Eureka! Enablers will be running a different activity each week, from stop-motion animation, learning about space, construction, craft and more.

The popular family attraction is celebrating 30 years since it opened, remaining the UK’s only hands-on museum designed just for children.

Don’t forget to book online, in advance, to avoid disappointment!
