Family Mensa at Eureka!

Join Family Mensa for a visit to the National Children’s Museum.

Eureka!, Halifax, 12:30, Sunday 15th July 2018.

Eureka! has been delighting curious minds for over 25 years – indeed, I believe my own last visit here was as a wide-eyed child. It offers much more than simple exhibits – the sight of a perpetually leaping Archimedes on entering will be the last time you eyes alone do the exploring.

As with all Family Mensa events, non-members accompanying a Mensan are very welcome - be they parents, grandparents, siblings or otherwise.


Tickets (Available on the day)

Adults £12.95
3-15 Years £12.95
1-2 Years £5.25
Under 1s Free

Tickets to Eureka! are somewhat unique – your entry fee grants you admission for a full year. So if one trip’s not enough, you can return time and again.

We’ll meet by the main entrance, at 12:30. I’ll be holding the Mensa logo on a white piece of paper, whilst my children wait eagerly to play with the science.

Should you be joining us, I’d greatly appreciate an RSVP at, to help anticipate numbers and ensure the whole group enters together.

Latecomers remain very welcome, just email me in advance, and I'll send you my mobile number, so you can be united with the group.
