Took our 2 sons here and they loved it. All the exhibits are interactive and entertaining. However some of them are a bit dated. for example the volleyball upstairs was interesting 10yrs ago but with the introduction of the Wii it now seems more like a historical museum piece. We will certainly bring our children back here as it is... More

Took Daughter with my 3 year old Grandson and was pleasantly surprised to see so many interactive experiences to enjoy; loads of fun and learning. Sadly many of the interactive games/experiments however, had broken parts making them unusable. Like so many of these types of theme parks/museums maintenance and attention to detail is lacking. Great fun on a wet Friday... More

We came to the museum having heard good things. We came and tried a few things out on the ground floor when we went upstairs only the giant bubbles and a film about wallace and grommit were working, and they were in semi darkness. No staff interaction in fact we only saw two people. Very dissapointed

We have visited various similar science parks in the UK but this is without doubt the best. Our grandchildren are constantly hungry for information and entertainment, we could hardly pull them away for lunch ( At Za Za Bazaar nearby ) and had to promise that we would use our armbands for re-entry. All the exhibits were working and all... More

We visited At Bristol with our grandchildren, there were so many interactive things to do that we all enjoyed it very much, especially as the children could go on line when we got home to see what they had been doing

I visited At Bristol with my 2 boys aged 5 & 6 and my daughter aged 8. We arrived at 10:30 and were entertained all day. We looked on the website before we left which suggests that a visit usually lasts between 2-4hrs, we didn't leave till 4pm and could of stayed longer. There was a great range of interesting... More

We went to @Bristol's ice rink yesterday (8th November), Frozen was playing on the big screen, fake snow, free face painting and the staff on the ice were incredibly attentive and helpful. We had an excellent time. We also visit @Bristol very regularly as we have an annual membership and we love it every time we go, again I cannot... More

We took a 5 year old here as it had been thoroughly recommended by a relative. We made it an overnight stay as it was a 3 hour journey for us. And wow, it was really worth it. We arrived at 11am and left as they closed without seeing everything. Loads of hands on activities for all ages plus a... More

We only arrived at lunchtime, and ended up being last out as they locked the doors. There is enough to keep 2 boys (and mum and dad) amused for at least a whole day. Great that all of the activities actually worked (I have been to plenty of places where they don't!). Great
