Support us

An educational charity

Every year thousands of people are inspired by a visit to We The Curious. Our vision is create a culture of curiosity we believe that science transforms lives and it begins with curiosity. Curiosity is the engine which drives scientific and artistic adventures. It's the seed for beautiful questions which lead to deep learning and new discoveries. We want to empower everyone to ask questions, explore the world and have a voice in shaping our collective futures.

We receive no direct central government funding and rely on ongoing support from you, our visitors, members, grantmakers, corporate partners and volunteers.

With your support we can continue to nurture people's curoisity and inspire the next generation of inventors, creators and dreamers, and science innovators.

Money raised from donations, memberships and visits brings science to life for all our visitors through hands-on exhibits, Live Science shows, curriculum-linked workshops for schools and creative experiences to delight and captivate our visitors.
