Owner description: 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.

I am not a young child (sadly) and was probably one of the eldest who in the building who visited without children. It is definitely marketed and tailored to younger children, having said that I did learn a lot and found the experience to be very entertaining.

A bit surprised it was on the pricey side. But there is a lot going on so you do get your money's worth. I spent longer than I intended to.

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 a fab day! So much to do! Can't wait to go again! Staff were amazing and kids were kept busy all day and enjoyed every bit of it! Went with 8,6,2 and baby we all had a fantastic day and will be visiting again soon! Really enjoyed coming home and watching back all the stuff we enjoyed in the day!

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 you get a real sense and purpose of our world around us ...without the boring bits. Thank goodness we have moved on from the dull, rigid museums we used to have, with acres of musty reading in order to learn.
The price is reasonable for admission compared to other attractions and there is so much to do and see - plan your trip accordingly so you don't miss out.

The only sad part is its situated in Bristol - a hefty hour and half away by car for us, so its a day spent planning the outing rather than walking to the museum. Once here, you do have the lovely harbourside with eateries and take out food on your doorstep, so you can refuel before or after!
