Support / Charity

Proud to be an educational charity number: 292758

Our mission: to engage children from birth to 11 in a range of play-based learning experiences which facilitate their emotional, intellectual, physical, social and creative development.

In other words, we believe that all children from all backgrounds have the right to play, and at Eureka! we work to bring playful opportunities to as many children as we can!

Eureka! receives no government funding. While our museum admissions charges cover the cost of staffing and general upkeep, we depend on the support of funders to undertake new gallery developments and charitable activities such as outreach educational activities bringing the Eureka! playful learning to children who may not get to  experience it otherwise.

Many thanks to our generous supporters, including:

Children in Need
