A whole day should be spent here in order to sample all of the various interactive activities, which are great for kids and grown-ups alike. At-Bristol provides an ideal rainy-day outing, as it is situated next to the car-park in the heart of the city, with many surrounding restaurants, though the museum itself has its own (slightly overpriced) cafe. If... More

Lots going on when we fished over the Bank Holiday weekend.It was great weather and children were playing in the water features. People were sitting in the square on deck chairs enjoying the sunshine. Lots of places to eat and drink.

We visit At Bristol a few times a year and attend their Home Educaters science days. They have two floors of fun, educational activities for children of all ages. There's also a cafe, an indoor picnic area, a planetarium and a well stocked shop. My daughter absolutely loves going there and I can honestly say, it's a place that she... More

We've been before about 5 year ago but it was better than before. Hours and hours and hours of fun for the kids and adults too in every way. We did the Planetarium too and that was good.

London's Science museum on a provincial scale. Lots of interactive display and things to keep kids occupied. UK's only 3D planetarium which is very impressive - The staff have a local charm which I liked although seemed at odds with the spacey tech theme.

This is one of my family's favourite places. We went on New Years Eve and did the ice skating and then again for my 9 year old son's birthday. The ages of our children are 10, 9, 4 & 2 and all four are entertained here. The vast majority of exhibits are hands on. As well as typical science orientated... More
