Eureka! The National Children's Museum

Where children play to learn and grown ups learn to play

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! The UK's foremost 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 fives and a whole range of fun activities and events for all ages to take part in.

Blast Off!

18 July - 31 August 2009

Visitors to Eureka! The National Children's Museum will be able to find out about space exploration and the science behind it this summer with Blast Off! - a cosmic programme of special events and activities celebrating International Year of Astronomy 2009.

The highlight of the programme, which runs at the museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire from Saturday 18 July to Monday 31 August, will be Robots Explore the Universe - a new and exciting temporary exhibit which lets children step into the shoes of real space scientists.

Robots Explore the Universe will give children from age five to 11 the opportunity to meet space scientists and engineers as they enter the space dome and transform themselves into space explorers through role play and costume. Their mission will be to investigate the surface of a new and mysterious planet and to find out about extraterrestrial life using robotic vehicles.

Robots Explore the Universe has been made possible thanks to the Ingenious grant from the Royal Academy of Engineering which aims to help engineers communicate effectively with the public.

Blast Off! will include indoor and outdoor activities for children of all ages with giant rocket making using recycled cardboard, spacehopper racing around the Eureka! Park and rocket launching workshops using simple household equipment from paper straws to film canisters.
