  • Must visit museum if you are in Bangalore for both adults and kids. especially for science enthusiastic. One can easily spend 3-5hrs. There having prototypes, still and working models of various departments of science and technology. Space models are really awesome. Museum is of four floor and each floor having 2 departments. Entry fee is 85/- , you can book online from their site. No fee for kids less than 5 years. They have 3D show for which separate ticket has to be taken.They have a cafeteria at the top floor & food is average. Weekend are generally crowded . Souvenir shop is there after entrance towards left where some items are kept for sale.
  • The museum is a fun place for kids and adults alike. The museum is made up of three floors dedicated to various aspects of science and technology. Many of the exhibits are interactive which makes it fun and interesting. The museum also has many large scale replicas of various engines and even the airplane built by the wright brothers. They even have a piece from the original wright brothers plane. Though there should be more benches for visitors to sit on inside the museum as the museum visit takes a long time. Overall though a must visit.
  • If dinosaurs, life, biology, space, mechanics, gears, pulley, engines attract you and your interests then this place is for you. I being a science enthusiast loved this place when I visited it. It is a must visit for children as well as adults. And for the entry fee of 85/per person that you will be paying it is worth every single penny. It's a four floor museum and has 2 departments in each floor. It has space, biotechnology, fun science, mechanics and a very fun dinosaur corner as well. The fact that the things here are not just showcases but they are interactive as well. It is great for sparkling interest of young kids in science. It brings about the curiosity about science in one's heart. The space department is just fabulous. I just loved it. One can easily spend 3-4 hours at this place. There are various other events as well for which you'll have to pay separately like taramandal(mini planetarium). There's also a cafeteria and souvenir shop in here. Must visit place if you're in Bangalore 😍
  • You must visit this museum if you are big science enthusiast or a general curious person who likes to see unique things. A must visit museum for adults as well as younger children. You will get to know how everyday things actually work. The Museum is huge and you can spend 2 to 3 hours here and still won't get bored. Museum is filled with prototypes of thousands of famous and popular things like Rockets, first ball pen, engines etc. You will definitely enjoy your visit here.
  • Good science and technology museum. Sections for machines, Biotechnology, Space, Electronics, etc. Model for Wright brother's first plane is highlight. Simulator for same first flight was under maintenance these days. A lot of learning for kids and adults. You can interact by pressing buttons, turning knobs and wheels to learn principles behind science. A seed exhibition was going on these days which was very informative. Children fun zone on 4th floor is awesome. At Rs 85 entry fee for adults, it is very nice deal. We took around 3 hrs to visit all floors. But we were slow. Can be done much faster. There is cafeteria on top floor. And toilets on each floor.
