Owner description: 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.

Absolutely loads to do, all interactive. Plenty for all age groups to enjoy. Aardman exhibits were particularly good. We couldn't find anything negative to say about what was on offer.

Planetarium was excellent informative and entertaining. We all learnt something. Will look at the night sky far better informed.

It was a touch pricey and the efficiency of the entrance ticket desks was poor. The queue was way too long and speed too slow.

Staff were all friendly and helpful.

At Bristol was recommended to us and we would recommend to anyone.

We were a mixed group from 9 years of age to 67 years of age and we all had a wonderful experience. Have been once before many years ago and we still found so much to try out. The younger ones had a fab time, running here, trying this and that. We visited the plantarium which they found really interesting. My only complaint is the restuarant, food bland and costly, Tables not getting cleared and cleaned, there were so many families waiting for a table to be made ready - my tip is take a picnic and eat it either outside or in the area they have set aside inside. Regardless of this it was still an extremely interesting and fun day.

What a great and exciting venue for the children and big kids alike.
This is a venue that suits all ages, and on site parking is very useful.

My husband and I took his 13 year old daughter. She had a wonderful, so did we. We saw children and adults of all ages actively getting involved. THis is an attraction that isn't age specific, its for everyone. THe planetarium is worth a special mention, it is superb and so informative. We had a great day and finished it off with tea and cake in the on site cafe. We visited several weeks ago, and my step daughter is still going on about it now.
