Eureka! was opened in July 1992 and has become one of the leading attractions in West Yorkshire. Eureka! is based on the North American model of children's museums with a focus on play-based learning and providing inspirational informal learning experiences for young people.

Dame Vivien Duffield, Director of the Clore Duffield Foundation, was inspired to create the UK's first children's museum by visits to the USA with her own children. While HRH The Prince of Wales was instrumental in Halifax being chosen as the location for Eureka!.

Children visiting Eureka! get the opportunity to learn about the world they live in through a series of interactive galleries.

Most visits begin in the Town Square where children get the opportunity to run their own town. They can fix a car, rob a bank, serve customers in the shop or deliver the mail.

In Our Global Garden BBC's Gordon the Gnome takes them through different environments in the world. They get to save a polar bear, build an igloo and ride a surf board to try and generate renewable energy.

The Me and My Body Gallery is the oldest gallery but still one of the favourite galleries. At the end of the gallery the children can have a chat with Scoot the Robot and tell them all the things they have learnt about the human body during their visit.

Eureka! has two under five galleries one recreates a desert and another a big garden with massive flowers that sing lullabies.

In SoundSpace children learn all about Sound and meet Orby an alien who has come to Earth to learn about sounds.
The museum has a cafe and shop.
