About

Get curious

We The Curious is an idea and a place for everyone. It's about asking questions, getting creative and testing things out. Science is collaborative, living and a vital part of culture - and the exhibits, events and activities aim to stoke curiosity in all of us.

With over 300 exhibits, We The Curious is a must-see for all ages and takes you on an incredible journey exploring the inner workings of the world around us.

Join Morph and friends in Aardman’s exclusive exhibition and become an animator for the day. Be awed by icy bodies and cosmic rays, walk through a tornado, create your own TV show or cover yourself from head to toe in a giant bubble!

Plus, there is always something new to discover with the ever-changing programme of special activities covering everything from anatomy and robots, to food and flight!

Project What If

Project What If is the first major science centre exhibition based on the curiosity of a city, based on gathering over 10,000 questions from people in every postcode of Bristol.

You’ll find the ground floor transformed into a space where art and science meet, with 68 new exhibits and 25 art pieces themed around 7 very different questions.

We The Curious is a fantastic day out for all the family to enjoy in the heart of Bristol’s historic Harbourside area, where you can also discover Brunel’s SS Great Britain and a host of cafés, bars and restaurants.
