Friends with 3 children were visiting us and off we went to Eureka. The cost of £13.00 each, 3 adults and 3 children was over the top. If they lived here they could benefit from the annual pass. Surely if this is really a NATIONAL museum there should be a reduction for those who visit and will not be able... More

We visited with a family of 4 adults, and three young children. This is a good entertaining day involving many interactive activities. It gets the little ones brains working but in turn makes learning fun. Most of not all exhibits are interactive varying from crafts, puzzles, roll play or tasks to name a few. It gives the little ones an... More

I visited Eureka yesterday with my friend and her children aged 4 and 1. We had to wait a little while to enter but we were greeted by extremely friendly and helpful staff! The price is £12.95 for an adult and this entitles the person to an annual pass which I may use if I visit with my niece. The... More

Spent four hours here which passed extremely quickly. It is definitely somewhere we would revisit with the annual passes and do the rest of the exhibits next time. Staff were fantastic, all cheerful and happy to interact with the children. Didn't give 5 stars as some of the exhibits had buttons which didn't work and this can be quite disappointing... More

Well thought would treat the four little ones to a trip here, looked a bit pricey at £13 even for a 3 year old, but it's classed as a annual ticket, so thought can go back a couple more times to get my money's worth. Won't be rushing back as cannot see anything changing to look at, few of the... More

Took my 11 year old today, been 10 years since we last went and I can't decide who was the biggest child. Fantastic day out, friendly and very helpful staff loads to do although a few items were not working ( obvious child misuse! Ha ha). Can't recommend the place enough, slightly expensive but worth it. Food is top class,... More
