Visitor Information

Times and prices

We The Curious is reopening in November 2020.

Our doors may be closed right now but inside there’s a hive of activity. We’re hard at work building our major new experience Project What If. This means a total transformation of our foyer and ground floor and this takes time.

We can’t wait to welcome you back!

Opening times

We are temporarily closed.

Once we reopen, our opening times will be slightly different.

Monday: Closed
Tuesday: Closed
Wednesday to Sunday: 10am-5pm


Everyone, including members, will now need to book e-tickets in advance through our website. It will not be possible to walk up and buy tickets at the venue.

Adult admission tickets are £14.50 and Child tickets are £9.50.
Personal Assistants and Members come for free.
Concessions are available.

More ticket information

We anticipate tickets going on sale towards the end of October. Please sign up to our mailing list for the latest updates.

We The Curious is an educational charity (number 1049954). We rely on income from tickets, donations and fundraising to keep our doors open for future generations and continue our vital charitable programmes.
