Pleasant surprise when we gift aided our entrance fee, we were given a £1 voucher for every £10 of the entry fee, which can be used in the on site restaurant or gift shop. You are given a wrist band so you can come and go as you please all day. Just inside are banks of lockers to put coats,... More

Hundreds of different scientific facts and experiments presented for you to enjoy. Many indeed probably most of the attractions have user interaction where you could press and turn buttons. You can also make movies, weigh yourself, see or hear things from an unusual perspective and generally make use of your senses. You can spend hours and hours in here without... More

We visited with a 10 and 12 year old. We spent 4 hours in the museum including a trip to the planetarium. There are a huge range of interactive activities and despite it being the Easter holidays it wasn't packed out and kids were able to fully appreciate the interactive nature of the museum. An interesting and fun place to... More

I've been here on several occasions and have always enjoyed my time as there is a lot of interactive bits that everyone can join in however it has become a bit too overpriced and sets you back quite a bit of money

Had a great day out with the kids, learning new things. Didn't realise until we were inside, that we had to pay extra for the planetarium - a bit disappointing. But lots of fun and laughter throughout.

Hi Sarah, Thanks for your review, really glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit. I just wanted to get back to you about the Planetarium prices; as it's the UK's first 3D digital Planetarium, with presenter-led shows, they do tend to sell out regularly. The ticket price goes towards At-Bristol's charitable aims of making science accessible to all, as... More

Our daughter visited @Bristol on a year 1 school trip, she says she had great fun playing...she built a house out of 'pretend bricks and roofing materials' in a soft play area; then went downstairs to the 'parachute' area; and then milked pretend cows.....! We're definitely going as a family soon!

The exterior and situation of the 'At Bristol' site was convenient and most attractive and clean. From the moment we entered the building we were met by friendly, helpful staff and were grateful for easily accessible toilets and excellent cafe. The attractions throughout the building were excellent and so interesting, catering for children of all ages. Our grandson is two... More
