National Children’s Museum Eureka! has marked its 25th anniversary year by revealing huge expansion plans – with an aspiration to launch a second visitor attraction in Wirral.

Eureka!’s existing site in Halifax opened in 1992 and has welcomed more than 7.5 million visitors through its doors.

It’s claimed the site is already one of the north of England’s most popular family attractions.

A second Eureka! could be built on the site adjacent to Seacombe Ferry Terminal, currently run by Merseytravel.

Eureka! says the £11 million project could open as early as 2021 if fundraising is successful.

The building will be designed to focus on an older 7 to 14-year- old age range.
