Eureka! Science + Discovery has announced the long-awaited news that The Burrow will open to the public on 27 May.
The Burrow, situated at the existing Eureka! Science + Discovery centre in Wallasey, is a playful and interactive space with objects, activities and play areas themed around local nature and our environment (there’s even an adorable Wood Mouse nest with a slide!) just for children aged 7 and under and their families.
Eureka! Science + Discovery tickets include entry into The Burrow, and annual pass holders will be able to access The Burrow free of charge.
Families are welcome to move between the main attraction and The Burrow, although capacity in The Burrow will be managed by the team at the admissions desk.
Liz Peniston, Director of Content and Visitor Experience said, “We know local families have been waiting a long time for The Burrow to open, and we really want to thank everyone for their patience. We love the space, and we’re so excited to share it with families now.”
The opening coincides with Eureka! Science + Discovery moving to a 6-day-a-week opening, with the attraction open Tuesday through to Sunday in school term times, and daily in school holiday periods.
A new ticket offer for local Childminders is also being launched this week, allowing Childminders to purchase a pass for themselves, one other adult carer and any 5 children in their care to access Eureka! Science + Discovery for 12 months.
Michelle Emerson, Director of Marketing and Development said, “Childminder passes are very popular at Eureka! The National Children’s Museum in Halifax, and we know that Childminders value the flexibility of being able to bring different children in their care on different days of the week.
“With The Burrow now available, and us being open Tuesday to Friday during the week, it’s the perfect time to get a Childminder annual pass.”
For visitors coming during May half term, there’s additional activities with a musical theme – featuring the popular Acousatron – a fully interactive sound installation built from upcycled materials, decorated in a steampunk style and facilitated by experienced Noise Technicians.
