Eureka! Children’s Museum is Awesome for Young Kids! – LifeinourVan
We reckon this is one of the most important aspect of our road schooling curriculum, we take each and every chance to grab some interactive science experiences with our girls. So today’s seen us head to Halifax in Yorkshire to see Eureka! The National Children’s Museum.
But if you’ve got young children, this is the perfect place to head for first if you’re visiting Halifax in Yorkshire. It’s easily accessed by motorhome/car (worth noting it’s a pay and display car park) or by train at the station which adjoins the main site.
Explore, Discover, Learn and Play are the keywords that Eureka! uses in it’s marketing and they’re pretty accurate. For our girls, they were immediately drawn to the ‘All About Me’ & ‘Sound Space’ areas…. but later dipped into others including the very creative ‘Spark Gallery’
Equally important are the distinct areas around the centre for younger children under 5 or the timed entries or clear routes through exhibits…… These types of clever design certainly allow more time to explore and learn at your own pace.
As per the growing trend with high quality attractions, tickets are valid for 12 months, so if you don’t manage to get round it all, you can come back another time. Our visit took 4hrs, but you could easily spend more time. You can even bring your own picnic to enjoy in the indoor picnic area (more details on Eureka can be found here)
