This place is amazing for everyone! I have been about 5 times on various school trips and the kids always love it. Although having to be a responsible adult I had to wait for the kids to go first on everything. But when I had my turn, I loved it!!

Really impressed with amount of entertainment to keep the whole family occupied. My tip is to head upstairs first as we were so distracted downstairs (more scientific) that we almost didn't have time for upstairs (more arty). The animation builders upstairs (take multiple photos of different play figures then they are turned into a movie you can email yourself) were... More

My husband and I 'played' at At Bristol prior to our Planetarium visit last week - what fun! We loved the animation creation stations, the water cycle model and the 'listening to music through your teeth' exhibit. Brill! Would def go again. With or without children!

I expect more here, but unfortunately most of the exhibits mainly for kids. Almost every activities for children. 3D Planetarium only interesting. Expensive, tickets for admission and planetarium show £18.50 plus parking costs £6.50.

We took our grandchildren ages 9 and 6 in the summer holidays. They were both entertained for several hours and didn't want to leave. The animation sets were a favourite especially as their films could be saved to show parents later. We loved the planetarium which was worth the extra cost. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The hands on... More

I have two boys aged 10 and 13 and they loved it here, we ended up spending the whole day here! I particularly enjoyed the planetarium 3D Solar System Show. There was loads for the kids to do, we were there the whole day and didn't have time to do it all. The cloakroom is a nice touch too as... More

This was our first trip to At Bristol & it was amazing. Myself, my husband & our 2 children had a wonderful time! There is plenty to do for all ages. The children were occupied for hours & enjoyed every minute. We spent about 4 hours here which I would say was just about right. We took a picnic so... More
