Do I need to book for We The Curious?

Yes, you should book tickets in advance on their website using the link below, as tickets aren't available for walk-ins.

We The Curious is located in the famous Bristol Harbourside, established as a science centre and educational charity. It’s a friendly, interactive space where everyone is free to come together to explore, ask questions and get creative. There are over 300 exhibits, with an ever-changing programme of special events from food, anatomy to the simple questions – there is always something new to discover!

Whatever your interest, whatever your curiosity, you’ll find something that’ll make your trip worthwhile – become an animator for the day at the Aardman Animations inspired exhibits, see what it’s like to live as an astronaut in the floating depths of Space at the Space Gallery, discover if machines can really understand human emotions, make meat-free food and sustainable items and even walk through a tornado!

If these activities somehow don’t have you hooked, then the planetarium will. Sit back, relax and take a trip to the outer reaches of the universe, with a range of exciting 3D and 2D shows that take you to distant, never-seen-before worlds. Join the search for extra-terrestrial life in the 3D Life in the Universe show, or discover how the sky may have looked like millions of years ago, and millions of years in the future, in the Ever-changing Sky 3D show!

Their new exhibition, Project What If, is unmissable – immerse yourself in a new world of possibilities, featuring 69 exhibits inspired by questions from the people of Bristol. Enjoy interactive exhibits, films and more that are themed on questions asked by Bristol’s visitors and community, from the wonders of science to fascinating individual stories and subjects that are rarely found. Learn about the science behind happiness, see what it’s like to turn invisible and even broadcast a message into space!
