  • Mock coal mine is a must. Also the gallery on Physics and Biotechnology are really interesting and will arouse your curiosity in unravelling the mysteries of nature. I personally consider BITM to be much better compared to Science City, if you have real interest in science.
  • Best science museum of Kolkata. Enquire for the interactive shows at ticket counter. They worth every penny for the ticket price.
