This is the ultimate family day out as Eureka! The National Children's Museum puts the kids at the heart of the playing, learning and exploring.
With around 400 hands-on interactive exhibits, this is no dry and dusty museum - it inspires children of all ages to find out more about themselves and the world around them.
The 10 zones include 'All About Me', learning about bodies by looking up a giant nose and scanning a pregnant tummy, 'SoundSpace', where you can help Orby the Alien test and create sounds, and 'Living and Working Together', a child-size town square that teaches about work.
Under-fives will love 'Desert Discovery', 'Creativity Space' and the 'SoundGarden', the latter a sensual play area that shows the beauty of nature.
Eureka! usually has a full family events programme throughout the year, has its own nursery and can play host to children's birthday celebrations. It also has a theatre which is used for a range of schools workshops on a variety of themes.
Parking, with applicable charges, is available right next to the museum.
Yes, throughout the museum.
Carers of disabled visitors get in free and with fast-track admission, while people with hidden disabilities can pick up a sunflower lanyard or wristband to ensure they are discreetly identifiable.
There is an onsite café and you can eat your lunch in one of many eating areas.
Lots of interactive activites for the children to get involved in, the entrance prices are reasonable and we would love to go back.
I have a 5 year old son who loves this place, we visit 2-3 times a year and there is always new things for him to do.
