Attraction Information

We The Curious is an interactive, intergalactic charity with a focus on play, asking questions and sparking your curiosity.

The centre has two floors of interactive exhibits to explore at your own pace. To help you get to grips with the material are the aptly named Live Science Team, who present live science shows, take you on guided tours of the night sky in the Planetarium and run all sorts of intriguing activities amongst the exhibits. The best way to explain what We The Curious is all about is by giving you a quick guided tour through a few of their fantastic zones. Even then it’s only skimming the surface, so what are you waiting for? Visit ASAP!

Build It! is where under eights get to work on a mini construction site, laying tiles or climbing the scaffold. Hard hats and high-vis are provided! Animate It! is the place for amateur artists to create their own storyboard, style their characters and even add 3D with world famous Aardman Animations. Finally, Food! takes you on a journey from plot to plate with a fully interactive sensory adventure. Dress up and dance like a busy bee or whip up a meal with RoboChef3000.

And finally, don't miss a chance to choose your own space mission and to fly to far-flung worlds in the UK's only 3D Planetarium.
