Loved it as a kid and still love it as a dad. We came just befor Xmas for a family and friends get together befor the Xmas holidays. Was a lovely day out. Price is fair for what you get to see and do inside. Some people think otherwise. But am happy to pay :) see you soon

Why do adults have to pay so much for something that is mainly for children. It cost us almost £100 for the entrance fees alone. The younger kids enjoyed themselves admittedly, but, having been before I found it a bit of a yawn. My opinion is that it is over priced and overrated.

This is a great place to go with the kids when it's rainy. It is not something I can do regularly due to being on a budget but you can spend all afternoon there and there are activities for alll ages. A great asset to Bristol.

If you gift aid when you arrive they give you £1 each back to spend in the shop or cafe. When we arrived straight away the boys (9 and... More

There's very little I can add to all the other reviews, apart from to say that I love going here as much as the children do! There is SO much to see and do and touch and build and generally mess around with. Yes, it's expensive - but the little ones (and not-so-little-ones) will be clamouring to go back. As... More

We visited between Christmas and New Year with three kids, aged 11, 9 and 6. Having visited a few places like this before we knew what to expect but were still pleasantly surprised by the number of different and engaging things for the children to do, despite the age ranges. The 3D Planetarium was brilliant and we all particularly enjoyed... More

Took a six year old and a 2.5 year old here and could not get them to leave easily, they were so involved. Besides being amusing and teaching the basic science objectives, this is a full days entertainment, A few of the exhibits need a little TLC but this did not really deter the children. Pricey for the day but... More
