It said all the favourite exhibits will be there, some of which have had a facelift, and there will also be new experiences - such as brand-new Planetarium shows, a hands-on summer programme, and a new look foyer, café and shop.

"It’s been a whirlwind of activity at We The Curious as we prep for reopening so it’s fantastic to say that it’s officially time to open our doors!" said Donna Speed, CEO at We The Curious.

"We’ve seen an overwhelming amount of love and excitement since we announced the reopening date earlier this year and we can’t wait to welcome people back to explore their favourites and be surprised by something new.

"We hope you’ll join us this summer to celebrate We The Curious being a thriving part of Bristol once again."

Doors are set to be open Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm during termtime, and daily 10am to 5p, during school holidays, with timed entry slots. The centre says pre-booking is strongly advised to guarantee entry and is necessary for the Planetarium shows.
