Eureka is home to The National Children's Museum, an interactive educational museum for children that only allows adults to enter if accompanied by children.  The museum's Wikipedia page says that it, "...  was founded in 1985 by Vivien Duffield. Eureka!'s location was partly inspired by Prince Charles, who opened the museum on 9 July 1992 and was its patron until 2002."

"It is located on former British Rail land next to Halifax railway station.  The building design was led by Ken Moth of Building Design Partnership, an architectural practice, and the exhibition designs were produced by an in-house team and by design groups who pitched for various elements of the work."
