  • It's Just out dated and a poor museum masquerading as somewhere good to visit in Halifax. I'd go elsewhere like the media museum in the future. 
  • We have visited Eureka a number of times and have always enjoyed it!! There is so much for the kids to do and with the free upgrade to an annual pass it is excellent value for money. There's so much t...  read more »
  • The museum is ideal for kids and people who love science but too many kids even on a school day who take up the gift shop and the cafe. 
  • Really good value day out for the family. The kids were really entertained and learnt loads without realising?
  • Visited with my 7 year old autistic son on a reasonably busy wet Sunday afternoon. After a great 3 hours he unfortunately had a meltdown. I've no idea where the wonderful member of staff appeared from but she offered us a dark quiet sensory room, signed in makaton to my son & even offered sensory toys to help calm & sooth him. Thank you so much, the service from all of your staff was like nowhere I have been & the museum is an amazing experience where I learnt a thing or two too!
  • This was a real let down to what we thought it was going to be. A lot of the features were tired and worn out, with no care put in to keeping it looking fresh. Worse even was the new features which were very superficial, they sounded great on the posters etc but had no real depth. We got a years pass for buying a ticket, but we are really not disappointed at all to have lost it already. There are better places to take the kids.
  • An absolute gem of a place, we've had family membership on and off for several years, as we live locally and it's nice to be able to drop in for an hour or so on a rainy day without worrying about getting your money's worth from a day ticket! Brilliant educational exhibits and we've never got bored of the place!
  • I bring the children i work with here on a regular basis. The fact the staff provide ear defenders to children who need it (i work with asd) is fantastic. The staff are so helpfull and great with the kids. Great place to go with lots of fun to be had
