Later this year, we’re opening a brand-new Eureka! visitor attraction in Wirral. Eureka! Science + Discovery will be a high-profile addition to the exciting cultural landscape of the Liverpool City Region, a crucial element in the regeneration of the left bank of the River Mersey, and the only Science and Discovery centre specifically for children and young people aged 6–14 in the UK.

Our new science and discovery centre will complement Eureka!’s National Children’s Museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire – the UK’s only dedicated children’s museum; an interactive hands-on experience specifically for children aged 0–11.
