Visit Eureka! The National Children’s Museum this summer for a boredom-busting festival of fun, science, performance and play! From Saturday July 23 to Sunday, September 4 Eureka! will be open daily, with a packed programme of activities perfect for families with children aged 0-11.

Come rain or shine, summer at Eureka! will include regular visits from storytellers Ian Douglas and Gacko, explosive science with Professor Pumpernickel, celebration of Tim Peake’s mission in space with the Destination Space family shows, and regular opportunities to meet pets and farm animals from Riggmoor Reindeer Company, plus much more.

Visitors will also be able to get involved in The Crunch and explore how our food, our health and our planet are all connected and how we can all help create the recipe for a happier, healthier future. Have a go pedaling The Crunch bike to turn pedal power into your very own juice and get a sneaky peak at what the food and drink of the future might be like.

There are more than 30 performers and acts booked across 44 days, a changing programme of activities plus, of course, more than 400 exhibits to explore in the UK’s first and foremost children’s museum.
