No. We run special adult-only Lates events for those who want to visit without a young person in their booking. Eureka Museum is an attraction designed for children and young people aged 0 – 14 and their parents or caregivers.

Eureka! Science + Discovery has been created for children and young people aged up to 14, but parents, grandparents and older family members can still have just as much fun as the kids. 

There’s a separate space just for our younger visitors in The Burrow zone in the terminal building, but your tickets get you access to all areas in both buildings.

Dogs are not permitted at Eureka! Science + Discovery. Assistance dogs are permitted, and can be provided a bowl of water upon request. 

The chill-out room at Eureka! Science + Discovery is a safe space for visitors with special needs and visitors who need some quiet time or prayer. Ask a member of staff and they will show you to the room. 

Eureka! Science + Discovery provides extra support for any visitor that needs it. Simply ask a member of staff if you need support, including wheelchairs, hearing loops, ear defenders, or spare clothes.

Eureka! has two very different sites in Wallasey and Halifax, but you'll recognise the Eureka! approach at both sites. 

Eureka! Science + Discovery is designed as a science centre for young people, rather than a children’s museum.

You’ll have a great time at both though!
