Take a look at the new 12-foot-tall cat structure coming to Eureka! Science + Discovery

Eureka! Science + Discovery’s first exhibit prowled through the streets of Wirral to its new home earlier this month.

The huge, 12 foot tall structure of a friendly feline has been exclusively revealed as the centrepiece of the new Merseyside attraction’s Home Zone, which will explore the science behind everyday sights and sounds, showing young people what goes into creating many of the things we take for granted.

Taking the crown for the heaviest cat in Merseyside, if not the UK, the paw-inspiring kitty weighs in at more than 750 kilos! The contender for the UK’s coolest cat will welcome thousands of families to the new attraction – complete with a twitching tail.


Not only will visitors be able to stroke and take selfies with Wirral’s most magnificent moggy, but they’ll also be able to discover the truth behind a cat’s nine lives, learn what a pet cat’s meows, growls, hisses, and chirrups actually mean, and even have a go at trying to catch a mouse quicker than a cat can. (Spoiler alert: No chance).

Leigh-Anne Stradeski, Eureka!’s CEO, said of the attraction’s newest, feline-shaped addition:

“Well the cat is well and truly out of the bag! We couldn’t wait to share one of our favourite creations with you, an exhibit we’re sure will be a firm fan favourite, too.”


“But we need your help, and we’re not kitten around! Our new furry friend doesn’t have a name, so we’re looking for people to help us out with suggestions on our social media channels to help us name the UK’s coolest cat.”

The exciting and varied exhibits at Eureka! Science + Discovery are dedicated to helping young people explore science stories and bring STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) subjects to life.


Eureka! Science + Discovery’s founding partner is renewable energy company Ørsted, and the project is funded primarily by £6.44m from the LCRCA’s Strategic Investment Fund and a £3m award from the Inspiring Science Fund with a further £0.5m invested by Wirral Council.
