  • It's a wonderful place to visit. Especially kids interested in science. It would take around 3 hours to explore all the floors. It's better to read before trying out devices kept for display. This will help to get better understanding. It would be better to carry snacks and food since cafeteria is not that good. Other wise a highly recommend place to visit.
  • It's a wonderland for science enthusiasts. State of the art exhibits of models. Very nicely explained models. Well categorised sections. Kids will surely enjoy. Adults will enjoy even more if science and technology intrigues you. It also has 3D shows at regular intervals. A must visit place for people who understand and appreciate science and technology. Only problem is the food service available in top floor, it is the worst possible food you can eat and there is no clean washing area.
  • This place has variety of fixtures to offer. A must visit place for a science enthusiastic, in fact anyone. You can visit with anyone whether a friend colleague, family or IV of college (in my case) and have the same fun! They showed us a lot of demos related to working of many machinery in a funny, entertaining way. That means whether you are a hardcore science lover or not, you will find it amusing. They also allow us to use camera, so you can capture photos and relive it later. The topmost level was my personal favourite in the museum (Science for children). Attaching a snap, hope it is useful
  • Best industrial and science museum. Must visit. I had visited this museum when I was studying but now after almost 20 years later I visited still it has very relevant scientific shows and updates. I also saw space related display like Mars orbiter mission , chandrayaan launch systems and very easily understandable way. Some of the government organization like this museum are exceptionally maintained well. Hats off
  • Excellent place for kids interested in Science. Lot of science experiments are demonstrated. Lot of exhibits like rocket, satellite, life size replica of first air plane of Wright Brothers etc are displayed. A must visit for young minds. Some of the science experiments in the fun zone are not maintained properly. But overall it's an excellent place for an Educational weekend! Worth the time and Money!
