Myself and my two sons attended this attraction last week, It was crowded ,however plenty to do and see. Many hands on items and topics of interest , Mostly for teenagers.Overall worth a trip we took 2 hours to look round.

Visited @Bristol for the first time and must say was very impressed with the set up. We spent nearly all Sunday there and still had plenty to do for our next visit. We bought a season ticket for my daughter and granddaughter as a Christmas present. They will obviously get their monies worth.

Kids loved it. So much for them to do and learn. Good for over two hours. Great fun. Would definitely go back.

Visited first thing on a Sunday, highly recommended as you miss the nightmare of parking and the queues. Exhibitions were great but some were missing bits which meant they couldn't be used, a couple of exhibitions were being mended which meant we couldn't use them and the planetarium was closed and that wasn't mentioned upon entry. Spent a couple of... More

Great science museum but the pop up cafe on the second floor was awful! It serves cheap quality, bad food (sausages, chicken nuggets etc.) at extortionate prices. As an attraction aimed at children I would expect (and have seen) much better. Take a packed lunch and you will have a lovely day but, even without lunch, you will spend a... More

Hi MissAMachester, Sorry to hear you had a negative experience in our Top Floor Pop Up café.

A perfect museum for kids. Hands on everything! Pre book your ticket especially on holiday times, we just walked straight in past massive queue much to my husbands delight! Animation section is great fun but be prepared to spend quite a while here. Planetarium was closed on our visit so hope to see it next time. 4 and 7 year... More

Visited yesterday with my 2 children we all had a fantastic day and really enjoyed all of the activities it had to offer we were very happy with our little pots of flour that we ground ourselves and our spices that we selected and ground in the food exhibition. My only criticism would be the cafe on the top floor... More

I went to here with 3 of my children (aged 5, 9 & 17) this week (half term) The journey from home should have taken us approx. 35 minutes. I didn't mind an additional 10 minutes due to traffic in central Bristol (always a nightmare) but the over 90 minute queue for the carpark was outrageous :( @Bristol's website only... More

I have to admit I was a little disappointed here. A lot of things looked worn. The queues for the animation was trying. Loved some of it. Best suited for younger children. Just felt for the money you would have been better off doing other things.

Hi JaneH, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, and sorry to hear you didn't get the most from your visit. February half term is our peak time of year, with this year being bit of a bumper one, and sometimes it affects our visitor experience. If you fancy giving us another go we'd advise a... More

I visited At Bristol for their After Hours events for grown-ups one Friday night. It was fantastic! The atmosphere was great, there were loads of people there having fun and enjoying all the exhibits. I had a go at chilli tasting, making giant bubbles, lighting up brains, looking at optical illusions, caveman speed dating and more. There was a DJ... More
