    From Eureka!…

    We’re excited to let you know that our next Eureka! Home Educator Day is less than one month away and we’d love for you to join us!

    On Friday 29th September we won’t take ANY school bookings and our team will be running additional learning activities – JUST for Home Educator families!

    Please note that the museum is still open to the general public on this day. However, we are restricting visitor numbers to ensure that you can still have the best possible experience.


    You will be able to book online for the following science show…

    ? Nature’s Superpowers! (5yrs+) ?
    Times: 35mins sessions at 10:30am, 11:15am, 12pm, 1:30pm, 2:15pm, 3pm

    Join us as we dive into the captivating world of Nature’s Superpowers. In this exciting show we’ll explore the incredible links between your favourite superhero powers and the wonders of the natural world. It’s time to unlock the extraordinary in the ordinary because in the natural world, superpowers are not just the stuff of legend; they’re all around us! Get ready to unlock your inner superhero too and be inspired to explore, learn and protect our incredible planet!

    Our friends from Springfield Park Bees will be running 45min long workshops where families can learn more about honeybees and other pollinators. We’ll be looking at full frames of capped honey. This is a special process the bees work on to make the honey ready for them and for us to eat. We’ll also be trying on bee suits and gloves/gauntlets to show how a beekeeper dresses, and we’ll be trying some fresh extracted honey. Limited availability.

    As well as the below much-loved drop-in sessions…
