We the Curious have announced a treasure hunt for free entry

Posted on: 22 May 2024

We The Curious, Bristol’s science museum, is reopening this July – and they’ve just announced a city-wide treasure hunt to receive free entry.


Opening in 2000 as Explore @ Bristol before changing its name to We The Curious in 2017, WTC is Bristol’s premiere science centre and educational charity. After bringing excellent experiments, interesting interactivity, and effortless education to the people of Bristol for years, We The Curious was sadly damaged in a fire back in 2022.


Since then, the science centre have been working tirelessly to restore the site, whilst hosting science and education events across the city. Now, with their reopening announced as Tuesday 2 July, they’re keeping the city-wide love going with a scavenger hunt in every postcode – with free tickets as a reward.



We The Curious will be working with a ‘community partner’ from each postcode around the city in order to hide five silver ‘Curiositickets’ (see picture) in their space or venue. The various venues have already been announced, but each postcode’s tickets go ‘live’ on a different day. See WTC’s page for the full breakdown of venues and dates.


Finding a ‘Curiositicket’ will entitle the holder to free admission to We The Curious for a group of up to 6 people – valid from 2 July 2024 until 31 December 2025. Additionally, you’ll have free entry to a show at the Planetarium – the state of the art (and stylish) orb that was the UK’s first £D planetarium.



The scavenger hunts for Lyde Green Community Centre in BS16 and The Hub in BS7 have already gone live, and Zion Bristol’s (BS13) tickets went live today. Coming up tomorrow will be St Werburgh’s Community Centre in BS2 – so keep your eyes peeled.


Temporarily losing We The Curious has been a terrible sorrow for Bristol – and this is a really fun way to generate some buzz for their return, and get the curiosity of Bristolians flowing once more. For more information on the treasure hunt, and more on We The Curious, head to their website. For updates on the hunt, keep an eye on their Twitter account (or X account, if you really must insist).
