We The Curious, Bristol

4.3
#2 of 20 in Museums in Bristol
Exercise your mind in one of the UK’s biggest interactive science and discovery centers. The stated aim of We The Curious 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.

  • My girlfriend wanted to do a planeterium so I booked this place. Hoped the museum might be good too but only go here if you are bringing children. It's very child-based stuff. Planeterium was good tho...  more »

  • I have been coming to this place for years and always found it good for a couple of hours entertainment. My kids are always keen to go, even if it has lost it's novelty for me a little over the years. I'm not quite sure about re-brand as I feel that they could have focused a bit more on refreshing the activities and exhibits.
  • Loads to do for the kids (aged 4 & 6) was quite busy but to be expected on a rainy day, the animation part upstairs was good and interesting and kept the kids entertained. Overall worth the money especially when you can leave and re-enter on the wristbands. Don't forget to scan your wristbands on the scanners and check out on-line when you get home 👍👍
  • 5hrs went far too quickly for 10 year old Grandsons & 66 year old Grandmother. As one said "why go to museum when you just look & read when you can c one here & press all the buttons" Lots to see & do. The 3D show in planatarium well worth it . Good day out on rainy day
  • A fun and interesting place for people and kids of all ages, loads to do as a lot of the displays are interactive. From basic science to the latest technology, and all explained in a way that's easy to understand, and my wife says " and that's coming from someone who doesn't know how to work our dvd player ". In the reception area as you enter the building there's a nice cafe, would recommend the coffee and cakes. all in all a nice experience to while away a couple of hours, and then perhaps as we did, a stroll around the harbourside.
  • This is a great place for adults and kids alike. The hands on exhibitions are great to hold your interest and some of them can give you quite a giggle when the results don't turn out quite as you hoped or expected.
