We recently had the pleasure of reviewing Eureka Children’s Museum. I’ve wanted to take the boys there for a long time but obviously had to wait till Mylo knew what was going on!
They have a brilliant location where they currently are. The space is good and they are albeit would be better if they had a bigger space so that they could possibly expand.
Activities inside Eureka Children’s Museum
Inside Eureka there is PLENTY to do. There are activities including:
- Music and sound
- Baby clinic
- Digestive, nervous, circulatory systems
The list just goes on and on.
There is lots to do and it is all interactive which is the best way for children to learn. Learning through play is the most beneficial for children to engage and soak in all of that information.
Our experience at Eureka Children’s Museum
Leo and Mylo had a lovely time and they got fully engaged with the majority of activities. There should be more museums like this for children in the UK. There really aren’t enough places where children can learn quality material through play, not above the age of five anyway. Obviously my specialism is birth to five with my background being in the early years but play benefits everyone. Everyone learns better through play, yes, even adults.
Do you remember the last time you played a game? Did you learn anything from it? However little it was, maybe a new skill or a fact that you never knew.
Here’s some photos from the day!
What I would change
There is only one thing that I would change about Eureka is to have more activities for the under five age range. A lot of the activities Mylo didn’t know what was going on or what he was doing.
Don’t get me wrong there were still things that Mylo could interact with and places suitable for under fives but on a personal level I think it would be better if there were just a few more areas that were specifically for the younger children.
Prices at Eureka Children’s Museum
The price of Eureka is very good value! And I mean amazing. Once you buy your ticket at Eureka you can convert it to an annual pass for FREE and you don’t pay anything extra all year! You can visit as many times as you like and you pay once! You can’t get much better than that though can you.
We vlogged our day but obviously we got round so much that I couldn’t possibly put it all into a video. You would be sat here for hours otherwise!
