A great day out for all ages
EPIC is an entertaining, accessible and educational day of family fun for kids, adults and grandparents alike. The museum is highly interactive, with easy-to-use technology and filled with memorable stories. We often have family-friendly events taking place, see here for more. Guests at EPIC can leave the museum to take a break during their visit. The CHQ Building has many food options available, and is easy to travel to with parking nearby.
