  • A Beautiful place to visit with your school going kids. Especially the Earth Exploration Hall is hugely informative. It also has live Butterfly Park and decently stocked Aquarium. A must visit place for school going children. Inside there is ample eating joints and drinking water. It is well connected having bus stop and located on major road of Kolkata.
  • Enjoyed this place. Kids will love it. Most of the exhibits were working. Some we're not. The space show was suspended and we understand it's not operational for quite some days. Enjoyed the monocycle, cable car and gravity coaster. Disappointed as we could not see time machine as even that was not working for quite some days. Overall fine.
  • This is a huge place filled with different buildings related to science experiments, astronomy, dinosaurs etc. Good for kids and also adults to see and learn. Some of the buildings need repairing. At the center is a park filled with outdoor science experiments. One can take a ride on the train as well. Different aspects such as nanotechnology, space age etc all have their own little museums within the Science city. One can enjoy and spend many hours here with kids.
  • Nice rides. Great rides actually. A lot of rides to choose from. Purely a good science park. One should visit the galleries and aquariums there. The place is a bit crowded, but it's good.
  • The Science City, one of its kind in India, inaugurated on 1st July,1997 has been developed as a major attraction for the residents’ of Kolkata as well as for the national and international visitors to the metropolis. Developed by the National Council of Science Museums, it is one of the largest and finest in the world, presenting science and technology in a stimulating and engaging environment that is truly educational and enjoyable for the people of all ages. It has, over the years, become a place for memorable experience and enjoyment for both the young and the old. and also good for gather knowledge
