Christmas at Eureka
As a family we love Eureka. We are lucky to have the amazing Children’s museum very close by. If you haven’t been then you really need to add it to your list of places to take the kids! We’ve talked about it here on the blog before, you can read more here.
We were invited down to Eureka to see what happens there for Christmas at Eureka.
We started off by having a wander around the museum, one of the best things about Eureka is that it’s incredibly hands on. Everything is designed to be accessible to children, which makes it really fun.
The kids loved being given free reign to enjoy themselves.
We were invited to the Grotto to meet Santa. The children know that when you see a Santa in a Grotto you are only seeing one of Santa’s helpers but honestly, see the Santa at Eureka and they truly believed he was the real deal. Santa knew about LEGO and Sylvanian Families and talked excitedly about the special section of the North Pole that makes LEGO. It was honestly very magical.
A visit to the Grotto costs £3 on top of your entrance fee but each child gets a gift, our two got a Christmas torch and Sticker book. They were both really happy. I would 100% recommend you see Santa, he was honestly amazing.
The other main Christmas offering is a Christmas show. The children absolutely loved it, they thought it was hilarious and decided it was the best show they’d ever seen. Adults may have cringed at the jokes, during the show but the kids loved it so we all got over it!
We also had the chance to see an example of a Science Party offerred at Eureka. The kids absolutely loved it, I would book this for C’s birthday party. It was fun and educational!
We had a wonderful time at Eureka and suggest you get down there to see Santa as soon as you can he’s there from 28 November right through to 3 January 2016! But it’s closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.
