  • Science city is primarily visited for 3 major reasons (listed below) and is a major tourist destination in 'The City of Joy'. 1) Leisure / Time Pass - Majorly by college and office goers. They gets a good number of well maintained parks to enjoy with their partner or group. 2) Enjoying the Dinosaurs parks and rides - Majorly by kids. 3) It also hosts a number of events (like public/private meets, events), the most coveted Book Fair of Kolkata, etc. It's one of the popular landmark here in Kolkata.
  • Science city is really amazing plase!! We're we get idea about whole nature what's going on and what is the logic behind science. Different types of animal spice's, science magic's, few other games zone ect., what not many more.. That would be really nice time if I would visit once again.
  • beautiful place to see and to know about indian scients and culture of india.india history and space exploration
  • Either all these reviews are to troll tourists or these people who have given reviews are from remote villages. This place is waste of time. It was good when it was inaugurated. Later they did not maintain. And this place never evolved. We live in the era of internet and devises, we have better information about our past. Better tell use the possibilities of future. The weather itself is so bad in the city you will not enjoy anything. Please don't go.
