Visited here with grandsons aged 5 and 9 who had both been here before. £35.50 grandparent family ticket incl. gift aid for the four of us. Older children get more out of here as there is a lot of reading involved in the displays and science experiences/experiments. Planetarium has plenty of viewings throughout the day and has a display stating... More

attended recently with husband & three children, aged 12, 14 & 15. We spent three hours here, exploring & discovering, we then ventured outside for lunch & came back for a further 2 hours, thoroughly good value for money. The children all found something that interested them & more importantly something that they wanted to share with each other. It... More

We paid £31 for one adult and two children (including a four-year old) including planetarium tickets, and was astonished at the cost. In fact, I asked the woman if she hadn't accidentally charged me for another person. However, I was glad I didn't walk out as the number of staff and shows on hand explained immediately why it was so... More

Although it can be quite a pricey day out, it is definitely worth it. We went to the Planetarium first, which was just incredible and so much fun, especially if you are into astronomy. They are always changing up the exhibitions regularly, so there is always something new to see. My daughter enjoyed making her own animation video in the... More

Great day out, particularly good for a rainy day. My 4 year old son and I spent 6 hours there on our last trip as there is so much to do with various shows throughout the day. We do find there are a few things not working every time we go but there is always still plenty to do.

I came with my mum and 5 children today, ages 3 months, 2.5, 7, 10 and 11. We found the experience to be good but extremely chaotic and uncontrolled. Struggled to get round the whole exhibit as there was so many people there. The exhibits we did manage to see were good and hands on but maybe slightly more aimed... More

We love this place! I've been with my family many times, always fascinating and focusing on the different areas! I particularly enjoy the extras too, the planetarium was brilliant. I've been involved in school trips too and the staff were always very organised and helpful! I'd recommend a visit.

When we went with two children there didn't seem a huge amount to do. The place wasn't busy at all and there seemed to be huge spaces between everything, some of the interactive items held the kids attention however others they just weren't interested in! I thought it was a little on the pricey side for what we experienced however... More

At-Bristol is an amazing day out for everyone especially children under 12. There are lots of interesting things that will occupy the children and some of the activities, are even irresistible for adults to try out. You will probably stay in there for at least two hours because there are lots of things to do. Next time I go to... More

This is a great venue for a day's exploring when the weather isn't great. At first it seems quite limited and quick to explore, but there is more around every corner. Every exhibit is hands-on, so the kids won't be bored and the adults found it interesting too. One tip - book early for the planetarium which fills up very... More
