Really enjoyed our time here. Loads for the kids to do and see. The Winter Stargazing 3D show at the planetarium was fantastic - genuinely moving. Staff helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend. Kept us busy for over 5 hours!

If you want to have a good time at "We the Curious" I recommend you to spend more than 2 hours there. It's really nice to explore each "toy", machines and experiments there.

If it rains this is an amazing place to spend with your children. I suggest you watch the 3D planetarium show as well. Really fantastic. I would not miss it if I were with children in Bristol.

I have taken my 5 year old Grandson to We The Curious on many occasions. Every time we visit he finds something different to occupy him. This is a great centre of entertainment and learning for children of all ages. Highly recommended.
