Car parking

Pay and display parking is available for Eureka! visitors

The car park is open every day (except 24-26 December) from 5.30am to 8pm.

Our car park machines accept contactless card payment as well as all coins from 10p upwards.

If you pay using cash then you will need the exact change as no change is given. Don’t worry if you’ve not got enough change – you can pay for parking using contactless payment at the machines too. Just remember to display your ticket!

Blue badge holders can park free of charge, and we’ve got designated blue badge spaces outside of the museum and in the rear car park.

Car Parking charges:

Up to 3 hours – £3.60
Up to 6 hours – £5.50
Up to 12 hours – £7.10
Up to 24 hours – £12.50

You will still be required to use the Pay and Display machines but you should have no issues with exiting after the events. Please note: any coaches will still be required to book in advance.
