  • I visited the place yesterday and I can assure you that I'm never visiting it again. The ticket rates are too high and is definitely not the worth. The museum was pretty deserted even on a Sunday afternoon and with the lack of air conditioners inside, it created a sultry atmosphere which was enough to make anyone feel sick in fifteen minutes of the tour. To be more frank, this place is one of the worst I've ever visited in Kolkata so far.
  • Excellent Science Museum, one of the best museum for Science & Technology.It has a great educative value. Every students must have visit to this beautiful gallery and demonstration shows.The coal mining demo is superb.The perfect place for learn and enjoy to those who are interesting in Science.
  • This is one of the best science museum in India. It has many galleries. It organises many shows like Science magic, High voltage show, 3D show etc. It also offers discounts for family and students.
  • A must visit for kids who are interested in science. And yes a fun loving for adults too. Coal mine and shows are the main attraction. Do visit
  • A place for tech lovers who want to go back to the time and see the old machinaries and how it evolved. The artificial coal mine is awsome.
