Eureka! Science + Discovery

About Eureka! Science + Discovery

Eureka! Science + Discovery is a brand new visitor attraction within the Seacombe Ferry Terminal, Merseyside. This ambitious £11.7m project has extended the reach and impact of Eureka! The National Children’s Museum.

The attraction which opened in 2022 has a target audience of 8 – 14 year olds which is slightly higher than that for Eureka! The National Children’s Museum.

Eureka! Science + Discovery located within Seacombe Ferry Terminal and the former Spaceport building is linked by ferry to the Liverpool Waterfront. The innovative plans have brought together the playful child-centred approach of Eureka! The National Children’s Museum with 21st century science and discovery centre innovation.

The attraction includes exhibits and activities designed to boost STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) skills in local children and young people, supporting key areas of the regional growth strategy such as low carbon, advanced manufacturing, life and health sciences, digital and innovation.

Our Approach

Montfort Consultants supported Eureka! Science + Discovery with a catering scoping exercise, to determine the future strategic, operational and conceptual parameters for the future café and wider visitor food and beverage offer. Unlike Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, Halifax the café located within the new venue, Seacombe Ferry Terminal is also open to the public providing wider opportunities including those from ferry passengers. We also provided benchmarking and business planning advice as well as additional support to determine the most advantageous management and governance model, including a market engagement exercise.

Advice & support has included:

  • Stakeholder engagement & environmental analysis
  • Critical internal & external food & beverage considerations
  • Conceptual & operational recommendations
  • Demand modelling, benchmarking & financial projections
  • Management options & recommendations
  • Informal market engagement
