Leading playground equipment designer and manufacturer, Sutcliffe Play, is delighted to be working in partnership with Eureka! The National Children’s Museum, in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
The partnership allows children on school visits to the museum to experience first hand the innovative and exciting Snug play equipment.
Eureka! is the UK’s first and leading Children’s Museum with over 400 interactive exhibits, inspiring children aged 0-11 years old, to learn about themselves and the world around them through imagination, play and discovery. Eureka! wanted to provide an interactive playground for visiting groups of school children and families to enjoy during their trips to the museum.
The museum is also home to the Eureka! Den, a holiday club for children during the school holidays, and the Eureka! Nursery, an early years child care provider. The Den and nursery make frequent visits to the museum and outdoor play area so it was important to provide play equipment that would appeal to a wide range of children and abilities.
Design and Build
Snug, the revolutionary concept in loose parts play is designed to transform play areas into dynamic and creative playscapes inspiring children to explore, create, discover and learn. The colourful kit, comprising nine large, inter-related flexible shapes can be reconfigured by children to vary their surroundings. Snug is used in primary schools, nurseries, children’s centres, indoor play centres, shopping centres, hotels and now a museum.
