Overview
More
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.

This is one of the best museums of any type that we've visited as a family. Loads of inter-active exhibits that really engaged our children. Very high quality, picked at the right level but scientifically accurate. No problems with exhibits not working when we visited,...More

This museum has the potential to be amazing but is let down by its ridiculous name and the fact that when I visited earlier this week, over half the interactive displays were not working. The place was full of school parties and pre-schoolers, all wandering...More

Really enjoyed the show. Excellent videos which represented the lyrics and a touch of psychedelia from the period. If you like the music and visual effects you will love it

I had the pleasure to visit the museum for an hour before a pre conference reception in the venue. It was fascinating. 2 floors of interactive exhibits covering a wide range of subjects, from illusion, Growth, sound, the earth, virtual reality, animation and more. It...More

Missed this museum last time we were in Bristol as it was closed that day. Glad we made it this time. Learned about different bits of Bristol, its history, and its trade with the world. Nice cafe too.

We were advised that cheaper entrance was available in half an hour which was valuable advice. We spent a couple of hours enjoying the exhibits for only £5 each really good value. The exhibits are very hands on so whilst the little ones can turn...More
