#2 of 21 in Museums in Bristol
Exercise your mind in one of the UK’s biggest interactive science and discovery centers. The stated aim of At-Bristol is "to make science accessible to all" through hands-on exhibits to be enjoyed by the young and old alike. The permanent and special exhibits are organized into various themes: take a trip to space in the planetarium, discover the incredible science of the human body, become an animator, and discover how humans have harnessed the power of nature. The center also runs a "meet the experts" program where you can ask questions, share opinions, conduct experiments, and meet the scientists behind the latest cutting-edge research.
