We The Curious was previously known as At-Bristol Science Centre; an educational charity with an aim to “make science accessible to all”, it opened in 2000, and welcomed over 5 million visitors in the past 17 years. At-Bristol relaunched as We The Curious in September 2017, with a new vision that is committed to creating a culture of curiosity. We The Curious is an idea and a place for everyone. Our venue on Bristol’s harbourside is a bit like an indoor festival, with all sorts of different experiences, where you can interact with exhibits, test stuff out and participate rather than just visit. We’re all about empowering everyone to ask questions and get creative - with boundaries removed between science, art, people and ideas - a culture of curiosity.

Thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your visit. On the day of your visit a fire alarm did indeed occur. This was not a planned drill and a live alarm. It is essential that we quickly evacuate...More

Quite expensive but an enjoyable visit. We enjoyed all the interactive exhibits although my godson thought some of it was too childish (aged 12)

I went today at the At- Bristol Science centre with my grandaughter's school as a helper, it was fun and educational. We went in the Planetarium to learn all about the solar planets, it took you on a Adventure. Good for children and adults

The Year 3 children had a great time and so did the teachers. So much to do and all hands on. Our group did a programming robot session which was brilliant. Strongly recommend.

What I love about modern museums nowadays is the fact they engage with every single person who walks through the doors...and inspire every child even for those who think they're not interested. At Bristol has made Science in all its components fun and quirky and...More

yes, I think so. If he/she is just four that makes a difference but lively 4 year olds would fine plenty to do and look at. Its terrific.
