Overview
More
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.

The activities and exhibitions are wonderful, we were 2 adults and a 4 yr old. There were so many hands on things to do for all children that it was very enjoyable, however, the prices are extortionate, ie, more than £15 per adult and £...More

We went here on a February half-term. It was raining so we decided it was a good day for an indoor activity. However, so did everyone else. We arrived at about 12.30pm and we had to queue for at least an hour for the car...More

This was our first visit to Bristol Planetarium, and we both enjoyed it very much. The show was about 45 minutes long, and there was a live narrator who pointed out what we were looking at and provided interesting facts and figures. The images were...More

We initially weren't going to go to @Bristol again, but the kids wanted to, and it was raining. And although pricey for five of us, £52, we spent a good 5 hours there. It was half term, it was busy, but actually, they didn't wait...More

We usually love We The Curious but it was far too over-crowded this half-term to the point that we could not really see the exhibits and it was very, very noisy. The "pop-up cafe" on the top floor was a disaster with hardly any food...More

Parking is a total nightmare - couldn't get in the (millennium, underground) car park (550 spaces). No ability to pre-book a car parking space when you pay for WTC entry. No joined-up thinking between WTC and BCC. Never actually got in to the WTC venue....More

I have mixed feelings about these places - on the one hand they give a buzz to learning but on the other hand they can make people expect the buzz without depth. It is without doubt an interesting and dynamic place but the constant noise...More
