Calling all little explorers! The National Children’s Museum in Halifax, Eureka!, has extended its hugely popular digiPlaySpace exhibition until 15 April 2018.
digiPlaySpace arrived at Eureka! in July 2017 on its first ever visit to Europe from the Toronto International Film Festival, and will now stay until next spring. Created by artists and scientists from around the world, digiPlaySpace is an interactive playground with 14 exciting and imaginative exhibits for kids to choose from. At digiPlaySpace, little ones are encouraged to touch, play, and explore.
Kids can bust a move on camera for a personalized animation video at the Pop ‘n’ Lock exhibit or test their luck with robotic racing at Sphero Speedway. Little rockstars can even create their own musical instruments with an interactive conductive circuit board in the Ototo Sound Lab. Check out the digiPlaySpace.
With the addition of digiPlaySpace, Eureka! has hosted its busiest summer in nearly 20 years with over 60,000 visitors. The addition of digiPlaySpace comes soon after Eureka! marked its 25th anniversary with announcements for a huge expansion.
Eureka! has proposed to launch a second visitor attraction in Merseyside and as well as redeveloping its existing site in Halifax. The new Eureka! museum will focus on children aged seven to 14 to match the creative and digital skills of their generation and the ever changing workforce of the 21st century. The museum is expected to open in 2021, if fundraising is successful.
Eureka! offers full physical accessibility as well as guided access for for visitors with sensory conditions.
