Eureka! is the leading children's museum in the UK and gives children aged 0-11 a fun-packed day out. Eureka! was recently named one of the top three Favourite Family Days Out by The Independent. With 100s of hands-on exhibits in six galleries, from a futuristic world alive with sound to your very own home in the desert, there's lots to explore at Eureka!

The SoundGarden is the museum's most popular gallery for the under-5s. SoundGarden is a magical garden bursting with opportunities for little ones to play and discover. Orby the Alien has used her magical powers to make visitors very, very small so that they can experience the sounds of nature in a giant-sized garden - not to mention the sights, smells and textures too!

The museum is totally accessible to buggies and wheelchairs.

Everything at Eureka! has been designed to inspire children to find out about themselves and the world around them. They can see their own skeleton, catch a wave, save a polar bear, build a house and even get a job at the Post Office, all in a day's play! In fact there's so much to see and do that you'll find yourself visiting again and again.
