Eureka, the National Children’s Museum is running regular clubs for disabled children and their siblings that are fun, creative and completely FREE! Eureka is located next to the railway station in Halifax and has a large car park.
Clubs start with a short family quest to get you inspired before you get stuck in to a creative activity, run by their trained, experienced Enablers, who will make sure that the activities are accessible to all. Children with any disability are welcome at any club, except for three sessions which are for children with autism only (see list below).
The whole family is welcome and our clubs are not only great fun, but also an opportunity to meet other families, chat and share experiences. Clubs last two hours starting at 10am and involve a mix of play, art activities and gallery exploration.
And they’re FREE!
