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.

We went to the Thursday evening showing of the winter stars. This was my first time and the 3D effects were amazing and very informative. Just long enough.

A good afternoon out with the family but it isn't cheap!! If you can get a discount it's well worth it but full price is a little steep for what it is. Not much for under 5s either I'd say it's best for 7 +

Perfectly decent cafe but some shocking prices. If all you want is a coffee and a bag of crisps go for it, but unless this is a very special day out you may want to avoid eating anything else.
