Came here with my wife and 2 year old and we loved it. Everything is interactive and there's loads of different things to mess around with. Personally I really enjoyed the Aardman exhibits. We went there at 3:30 when the tickets halve in price. Meant we had less time there but it was plenty for our son.
Lovely museum. Truly impressed. Very good for children. My 4 year old was very Happy and played and learned a lot. Very well kept. Loads of activities to keep them busy all day. Good place for the whole family to spend their day together. Visit to the planetarium is must.
I went here back in 2009/2010 and decided to return this year when my partner and I went on holiday to Bristol. It was still as brilliant and fascinating as it was before. The staff were amazing and fun, which really added to the whole experience. It didn't seem like much has changed in those 8 years since being there before, but it wasn't an issue to me. Great place for all ages.
We the Curious (previously @Bristol), is an excellent place to bring young and old kids. There is plenty to do and plenty of space. There are two floors filled with lots of different scientific and animating stands to keep you and the kids occupied for hours. Worth a day ticket or a full year pass. There is a cafe, picnic area with vending machines, toilets upstairs and downstairs. There are 2 lifts and stairs. They have a planetarium with regular shows throughout the day. Worth a visit if you want to expand your mind or a child's mind,lota of fun exploring and learning to be done here!
Membership is well worth the money, especially as a home educator. Exhibits are thought out and fun. Most beneficial for slightly older children although there is plenty to keep little ones occupied.
Great place for kids and adults, it had plenty interactive experiments. Some of the instruments are more modern than I had on my chemical engineering studies :) Generally, the best science place of all I've seen so far in UK
An excellent opportunity to explore science through interactive experiences and play. Not just for kids! We loved being able to find out facts about our own bodies, for example we found out how tall we are compared to the average person and learned the weight of our own brains. We found each installation utterly enthralling and the planetarium was out of this world! We visited on one of their After Hours events. Great if you want to visit without the kids about.
Brilliant time for the family. Children really enjoyed learning new things. Only advice is to take your own food as the cafe is a rip off. £2.20 for a can of diet coke. When asked why so much the reply.... sugar tax.... um it's sugar free. Extortionate prices. Can see why it doesn't have much business
It's great fot curious kids - lots to do. The only downside is the Moscow exhibit where the virtues of modern dairy farming are extolled and which completely ignores the reality behind the clip tableau presented It's the only thing I really take issue with and it's more disinformation than education
Had a great time with our nearly 5 year old. Spent over 4 hours here. Loads of interactive displays that we all enjoyed.
Have just returned from our fifth visit this year. Always plenty to do and at least one new thing on each visit. That is a low level of newness but it never feels stale. Wonderfully friendly staff especially in the hands on demos. Our annual membership has proved a bargain. Tip: arrive when it opens at ten, and you'll have the run of the place for two hours. Can be a hectic from noon to two.
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.
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
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 👍👍
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.
