  • A must visit place in Bangalore...This is something so different and good... An international level museum .... Everyone from kids to old ones enjoy here with learning by doing projects... Interactive , working science projects and machines... Very interesting... So good for science students to understand the concepts of physics... It's a jewel in cap of Bangalore and yet so not very known place...It deserves it's due popularity.. do visit this place once and don't miss on shows that happen there during fixed timings mentioned on sideboards....
  • Superb place to hang out with your inner kid who is or was into science or are getting introduced to science. I can say it's well maintained even if it has a long history. Maintained by the govt, and very nominal entry fee, you'll not regret going there even after you'd got school long time back. Brings back all the school memories, the teachers who struggled to teach us these concepts that were so elementary but we still didn't understand the head and tail of it. You'd need a full day to get to know the whole museum. Go early, take your time, enjoy. Best science museum I've visited. I strongly suggest this to any one who fancies about physics or is studying physics. There is some biology/gene related exhibition as well. I did not have enough time to visit those exhibits . I could have happily spent one full day here.

  • A must visit place for science lovers and knowledge seekers especially students. Get a chance to learn different aspects of science in a very interactive and funny way. You get to see different engines and machines that forms the base for modern day technology, an interactive flight simulation model of Wright Brothers, fundamental principles of of electricity, fluid mechanics, sound and optics science, pulley system, ball contraption and many more interesting stuff. The museum can be made more informative though, and there is always room for improvements - important part is maintenance, keeping models in working conditions as at present many are not.
  • Amazing place for children above 12 years. There are 3 floors of knowledge gaining displays some of which are interactive. Many people spend about 3 hours here but for us to see and understand all of the museum, we need a full day. The ticket price is RS.50 and parking is available which is charged on an hourly basis around RS.20 per hour. Canteen available on roof top which has meals and South Indian snacks, also sandwiches and soft drinks. Opens at 10 am.
