HAlifax’s Eureka museum will spring into life to become the world of Alice in Wonderland this half term.

Staff at the children’s museum will be transforming into characters from Lewis Carroll’s famous book, including Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat and Alice herself.

Themed areas of the museum will bring a touch of Wonderland magic and help children explore.

Half term runs from February 11-19.

Children will be able to join the Mad Hatter and the March Hare for tea at various times throughout the day.

Alice will be wandering the galleries looking for the White Rabbit - who really doesn’t want to be late - and there will be a special round of croquet and other curious games in the Queen of Hearts’ Garden.

All half term events are free with an annual pass standard admission and suitable for all the family

Last November, Eureka was rated the UK’s number one hands-on museum by The Independent newspaper.

During 2012, a major feature will be a summer festival in the grounds of the Eureka site.

This will give families and children the chance to help us celebrate the museum celebrate its anniversary of 20 years of play and learning through a range of fun, family activities.
