Eureka! The National Children’s Museum

Eureka! Is the award winning museum and charity based in Halifax, West Yorkshire. Everything in the museum has been designed to inspire children to find out about themselves and the world around them through hundreds of hands-on exhibits.
 
We designed  a world for children where they could take on adult roles whilst learning about science, society, commerce and work. The gallery is a small working town with a house, shop, post office, bank, factory and garage all set around a town square complete with fountain and excavations exposing an area below ground level. The house has been de-constructed to expose its construction and all tits services such as water supply and drainage. It also contains a working kitchen for cooking activities. Children can dress up and work in the shop, factory or bank, service a model car, deliver the post or explore the structures and buildings, both above and below ground.
