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.

Pricey! But fun! Something everyone should do once - more enjoyable if you take your time to actually learn - would recommend for children over 8. The kids under 8 didn’t really understand the science and simply ran around a lot. Kids over 8 took...More

On entering the building you are in a large, spacious atrium with a well stocked gift shop but we did not pay to enter the exhibition as we found the prices too expensive for us lowly pensioners.
