  • Amazing place to visit. From antique cars to tech equipments belonging to all ages. It'll be an awesome experience for people who know little bit about computers and electronics. The car museum is very well maintained and I was surprised to find out that most of the antique cars are in running condition. Must visit place in Coimbatore
  • This is for the Car museum, I think there's another Industrial a museum at the same location but I wasn't a interested in it. Ticketsn adult and surprisingly there's no extra charge for cameras. There is car parking and bike parking. Make a note that you aren't allowed to take your bags inside unless it's a handbag so try not to take any valuables. The car museum is small but has a great variety of cars, some which have been put up for exhibition or gifted by other owners (you'll see their name and photo on a small placard) They're all authentic cars and are in great shape and well maintained. Staff inside (one girl I think) was extremely knowledgeable and I overheard her answering and talking about the cars in detail to a few other visitors. There are more than cars, there were a few bikes but apart from one vintage motorcycle the others looked out of place. One thing that I loved was that they had two cars that had been spliced in half and were up for display. One thing that I did not like was all the information at the back. I would have preferred the typography and other design to have matched the vintage feel to the place. Overall great place to visit if you are a car enthusiast or just need to waste an hour and like looking around then this is a good place to be. On a final note, this is not a place to take children below 10, sure they'll enjoy looking at the cars but they'll be just as excited of you buy them ice cream.
  • Very good place to visit if u r a car enthusiast. The staff goes out of the way to help visitors.. They guide u with alacrity and are poised to help. I have visited only car museum so Im not aware of science museum.
  • Good collection of cars. They have many cars all from varying times. From a replica of the first car ever made all the way to the Nano. The layout is well organised and each car has details and little facts about it on the side. The guide there is quite helpful and well informed too. Taking pride of place are the 4 definitive 'people's cars' of the past: VW beetle Fiat 500 Mini Citroen 2CV It's worth a visit if you like to know about automotive history.
  • I rated 4 for it's beautiful car collections and museum cleaness. I could have give a 5star if the museum has air conditioning system. Sometime I felt very hot inside the museum may be because it's located in the basement of the building.
