Matthew Lewis



As well as having fun, there's a huge educational element. You're let loose effectively, to discover. So kids have freedom, they feel much more in control and autonomous. That's where I think Eureka! stands above the rest of museums, for children.

Matthew started acting at the age of five, but it was playing unlikely hero Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films that changed his life forever.

Born and raised in Leeds, Matthew used to visit Eureka! as a child. He even won a competition to come to the museum on one of those trips.

He has visited us a couple of times since growing up and, even though he is a Hollywood star, he still loves jumping in the truck and pretending to take it for a spin.
