What ages are appropriate for visiting?

We welcome inquiring minds of all ages! There’s something to explore for everyone. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.


How much time do we need to visit?

The average visit to EUREKA! is 2 hours. Many stay longer! Admission is good for the entire day so if you decide to go out and eat lunch, you're welcome to return at no additional fee!


What can we do there?

We are hands-on! EUREKA! McConnell Science Museum is filled with interactive displays and exhibits that cover many science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics. Students can tweak, push, pull, drive, spin and more, all in an effort to better understand the world in which we live.


Can I drop my child off?

Our policy is that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult when visiting EUREKA!. If you don't have time to visit our space with your child, sign him or her up for a camp! They're a blast.
