  • After being to planeteria in Hyderabad and New Delhi, if one visits this Chennai planetarium for sure would stop liking science and astronomy. Both the Periyar science centre and planetarium are ill-maintained. They have a silly 3d show as well that will drive you nuts. The only thing kids may like is the outdoor park that too kids less than 8 years will only get fascinated. Do not expect anything when you visit there.
  • Best place to visit as newly married couple. There are lot to enjoy. 4 hours won't be enough
  • For children growing up today since the beginning of the evolution of the earth, to show the location of astronomical knowledge in explaining the science park situated around it and Planetariums ...
  • The 3D show's quality could have been better. Hall of Nuclear Power and the Gallery are not fully functional. Not a single working model is ON.
  • I came here during IISF 2017. It's a good place to bring young kids interested in science, especially in astronomy and related branches
