At Eureka! we’re experts at making learning memorable. We combine education with enjoyment, resulting in effective learning and lasting memories.

With over 400 interactive exhibits across six curriculum themed galleries, a school trip to Eureka! is a hands-on, fun-packed day that children never forget. Our specially designed school workshops for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 ignite children’s appetite for knowledge. Students leave with a spring in their step, a smile on their face and a renewed impetus for learning that stays with them when they get back to the classroom.
