Bristol can be a great place to visit at any age, but it’s a particularly good destination when you’re coming with younger children. Whether you want them to learn about Britain’s industrial past by visiting sites like the SS Great Britain and Clifton Suspension Bridge or view great works of art at galleries like the Arnolfini, there’s always something to see and do. If you’d rather take in some science-themed fun, you have to try We The Curious.
Formerly At-Bristol Science Centre, this state-of-the-art attraction is dedicated to hands-on discovery. It’s been enormously successful, hosting over 300,000 visitors, including 60,000 school students and teachers.
The centre is home to over 300 exhibits that take you on a journey that explores the way things work. You can create your own television show, walk through a tornado, or find yourself from head to toe inside a giant bubble.
If your kids are interested in the stars, don’t miss the UK’s first 3D Planetarium, which provides an immersive experience with full surround sound. As you sit back and take it all in, the We The Curious Live Science Team wow you with expert astronomical knowledge.
Besides established We The Curious favourites, you’ll discover an ever-changing programme of special activities, so keep checking back to find out more. If you can’t make it this year, feel free to hang on until 2019 if you’d like to take in Curious City.
