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.

Pre-book If possible. Easily spend half a day there. It's fun for all the family! There are lockers so you can put your bags somewhere to stop you sweating and allow you to experience the attractions inside.

We all loved this place. I couldn't recommend it enough. It's the best Science Centre I've ever been to!! Our favourite section was the animation. But there are MANY wonderful things to do. We could create our own animated scenes. My kids loved it and...More
