  • All school going kids must visit the planetarium. Kids of 7 - 8 years and above may be more receptive. LOCATION: Its conveniently located almost at the central districts of Bangalore City. Musical fountains are at close proximity and hence both these can be planned together. Ample parking available. PREMISE: Besides the Planetarium it also houses a garden on scientific concepts. Can be visited before or after. Kids may choose to dedicate equal time here as well. Wash rooms are available externally. though they could be more cleaner. PLANETARIUM: They offer various Programs in different languages. Mostly in the evening hours. would be good to go after checking their website. The contents were interesting enough to keep the young mind engaged. At the outset, this Planetarium is good enough astronomical introduction to the young mind. SPECIAL NOTE: The illiterate security guards at the gate acted a little funny in allowing our young kid in. on Pre-text that small kids shout and cry when it gets dark inside. We had real hard time explaining and inserting in their brain to let us go in.
  • Planetarium visit was barely worth the money spent. Visibility of the dome screen needs to be improved as it looks too dull. Content will definitely put you into a power nap. Kids will love it for its novelty value. Tickets are limited so stand in the line at least 15 to 20 mins before the show. The science park outside the Planetarium is a good way of introducing kids to basic concepts. No tickets required for entering the park.
  • Its best part to recollect the science 🔬 which we had done during our skoll days ... Even some are faded out during visit... those things which recollected during my visit... Good go for your child to get in to it and learn those part on practicals... And the Solar Movie 🎥 is excellent for level 0 to All ... but had to wait to get it that... And excellence for your memories....
  • Best place for children. Elders will get bored. Sky theater is good. All equipment needs renovation. Better not to go on weekends.
  • Great Place to be, if you visit Bangalore. Try to get in the weekday Shows. On the Sunday Shows there are lots off visitors waiting for a Ticket. But it is worthwhile to wait.
