    This is a good place for high school students and even early learners.The kids corner at the topmost floor is very good. A restaurant inside the building serves food but it was a bit shabby so we did not have lunch there. Scientific galleries are really amazing. A good place to learn. In the outside there is a small courtyard with tall trees outlining it.We saw lots of squirrels there. Rabbits, guneapigs and pigeons are there in a cage. In a small pool there are many fishes. Good for a family trip.

    It's really good and different type of museum. Unlike science city it just not merely focus on physics, chemistry and bio , but it's focus area is towards engineering. Different types of engines, turbines, car models, quiz make it a wonderful place to visit especially if you have a technical aptitude. Coal mine show is really good as it offers deep understanding of coal mining techniques, difficulties and latest technology.

    This museum is dedicated to the scientific inventions over the ages and is displayed in the form of beautiful models targeted towards a younger audience. However even adults will find this place educational as well as enjoyable. Do not miss the mock coal mine and the 3D show.
