Available until 3 September 2007, you can make the most of this magical place throughout the summer holidays.

Eureka! – a magical place for children
Eureka! is a magical place designed just for children aged up to 11, where everything is hands-on and learning is about what you can touch and what you can do! Often seen as the UK’s national children’s museum, Eureka! is a place where children can lead their own amazing adventures in six themed, interactive galleries, finding 100s of fun ways to play and discover more about themselves and the world around them.

In just one day… Take a larger-than-life journey through the human body; explore the jungle and desert; mix musical masterpieces and create special FX; try out grown-up stuff in a town especially made for kids; and lots, lots more! The museum also features two multi-sensory galleries exclusively for under 5s and a whole range of fun activities and events for all ages to take part in.

Including, this summer… The Beach at Eureka!

There’s never been a better time to visit Eureka! The museum grounds will transform into a giant man-made beach throughout August providing a seaside playground for visitors young and old to enjoy. There’ll be a promenade to stroll along, rock pool to explore and long stretches of golden sand so children can grab their buckets and spades and get stuck in!

A daily programme of face-painting, beach games and other activities are on offer from the Eureka! Beach Crew and children can also challenge themselves to find their way through an interactive Outdoor Maze.

Look out for regular special events hosted on the beach too; unwind at a Saturday Beach Party or take part in themed activity days – visit on Mondays for a Caribbean Surprise or Wednesdays to become a Beach Buccaneer! For all the latest What’s On information visit www.eureka.org.uk/thebeach.

The Eureka! Beach is open every day from 1 August to 3 September, weather permitting, and entry is FREE. Participation in beach-themed activities and special events may be subject to museum admission where normal prices apply.
