We The Curious was previously known as At-Bristol Science Centre; an educational charity with an aim to “make science accessible to all”, it opened in 2000, and welcomed over 5 million visitors in the past 17 years. At-Bristol relaunched as We The Curious in September 2017, with a new vision that is committed to creating a culture of curiosity. We The Curious is an idea and a place for everyone. Our venue on Bristol’s harbourside is a bit like an indoor festival, with all sorts of different experiences, where you can interact with exhibits, test stuff out and participate rather than just visit. We’re all about empowering everyone to ask questions and get creative - with boundaries removed between science, art, people and ideas - a culture of curiosity.

Formerly known as @Bristol, it's a big warehouse now converted into a science activity centre. Loads of stuff to look at and possibly even educational although the kids didn't seem to mind. I did learn that a cow produces 45kg of poo every day -...More

yes, I think so. If he/she is just four that makes a difference but lively 4 year olds would fine plenty to do and look at. Its terrific.
