Overview

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.

Took my daughter and a friend to We The Curious. Endless fun, especially upstairs. I recommend going early (we were virtually the first there, so it's not too busy and then head upstairs for the more interactive elements first.

Very nice place with lots of activities to do. A bit expensive but worth it if you have a few hours or longer to spare. I would recommend taking some snacks with you as it can get very busy.More

Really worth a visit. Great for all ages and very informative. The planetarium was particularly good in 3D. We had a great three hours and could have done more.

Hello, we paid about £7.00 and it’s well worth it. I’m not sure about children’s prices but the website is very good. Have a great time.

sorry can't remember exactly but between £40-50 for family of 4 it was worth it. We spent all day there. Great interactive exhibits.
