  • It's awesome place.Science city (Magical Place) is a good place for children and students. Also Here you can enjoy the science. There are lots of things to learn. Staffs are good. Like:- Toy train, I liked Earth exploration hall most. 3D theater is not good(but you get new experience) . I recommend to go there with friends and family if you want to go out for picnic and the place is really very good for those people are the students who are from a science and science background will definitely love this place.

Plays a noteworthy role for spreading scientific knowledge and growing scientific temperament among the school students and younger generation. Very nice place to visit with family and friends. The Kolkata Virtual tour is awesome. Kids can enjoy Dinosaur Show and all other shows. Riding a cable cart can be a thrilling experience for a first time visitor. Particularly, the top view from the Cable Car is really very good. The Auditorium is a big one with comfortable sitting arrangements. The entire complex is well decorated, creatively designed and well maintained.
