Discovery Road Halifax, West Yorkshire HX1 2NE 01422 330069, Approx 1h 5mins from Harrogate
This museum is a fantastic day out and is really highly recommended for children up to about 11. There are specific areas for the under 5’s and even a couple of special non-walker areas.
The concept of the museum is that you learn through play and everything there is hand-on. I visited with my 18month old and 4 year old and they were both devastated when we had to leave after 4 hours and have been begging me to go back since!
There is a mini M& S shop for the children to work and shop in, a bank and post office. There is a car garage where you can do a MOT, the sound garden, the desert area and so much more.
There is a cafe and gift shop on site although there are indoor and outdoor picnic benches if you want to take your own. Best of all, the cost of the admission gives you for free entry for 12 months. Parking costs around £3
Please note, they are usually closed on MONDAYS during term time and the new All About Me Gallery is now open.
