Eureka! The National Children’s Museum in Halifax is celebrating record-breaking visitor numbers.

Over 83,000 people have visited the award-winning museum during the first quarter of 2014, almost double the number of visitors for the same period in 2013.

More than 300,000 people have visited the family attraction since the launch of its £2.9 million flagship gallery, All About Me in March 2013.

The new gallery, which encourages children to make positive choices about their health and wellbeing, was named the UK’s Top Interactive Exhibition for Children by online parenting network Mumsnet.

Eureka! chief executive Leigh-Anne Stradeski said: “2014 has been a bumper year so far with our new gallery All About Me proving to be a really popular draw for families wanting to play as they learn.

“Many attractions across the region are reporting an increase in visitors - which is an encouraging trend for our cultural institutions and we’re delighted to see so many families heading to Halifax for their days out. Long may it continue.”
