To mention only a few of a large number of attractions here are an Earth Exploration Hal, Musical Fountain, a Maritime Centre, Space Odyssey, Butterfly Garden etc. Besides, there are a Picnic Spot, Auditoriums, Seminar Halls, Gallery and Exhibitions inside. Entry rate is Rs 40 per person. For different attractions inside the campus, the rates vary from one place of attraction to another. The entry and other rates for School children are lower than those for others. Since its inauguration in 1997, Science City has gradually emerged as one of the major places of attraction in Kolkata.
