Great day exploring science, making large bubbles, exploring space, making computer animations and throwing our shadows on the wall. The place could do with a larger picnic area, but the use of the lockers is a great help so you don't have to carry coats and bags. Spent 3 hours in the place and could spend longer there - will...

our two sons age 9 and 4 had a brilliant time here. We spent about 4 hrs there but could have stayed longer- but we were all getting tired after a long day. The exhibits really fired the kids interest and were educational but most of all fun. A brilliant place for igniting an interest in science

There are a wide variety of different things to see that are are interesting to both children and adults. Whether it's animation, magnetism, plant growth, etc, etc or... More

Lots to see and do and regularly have themes & exhibitions but expensive for a whole family visit for what's there! Food in cafe also expensive plus you have to pay for parking so all in all pricey day out. Tip: If you can visit on a Sunday the you can get cheaper parking or a free a bit of... More

We went for our sons 3rd birthday, he is a little on the young side for @Bristol but he throughly enjoyed it, there was lots of him to see and do, plenty for his dad and I also. Aimed at more school aged children in my opinion but it was a good day out.

This kept my 11 year old busy for hours! We especially enjoyed the animations and the Planetarium. It was a really rainy day, so the provision of lockers was helpful, as I didn't have to carry wet things around all day. Lots of space to explore.

This is a great place to take children where they can learn and investigate while they play. Favorites were the bubbles,the water play,the Wallace and gromitt section.In fact they enjoy all of it and as it regularly changes parts we go every year .

Visited AtBristol for a recent conference using the top floor conference centre and syndicate rooms...made the most of my time and visited the hands on AtBristol exhibition. Really excellent in every respect, staff always friendly and helpful, good catering offer though a little small for really busy times.. Visiting Bristol this must be added to your attraction list...
