  • Place that every parents should visit with their kids to make them well aware and educate them about our historic, geographic and cultural aspects. They conduct workshop which can be another options to go for. They plan all program in different languages like English, hindi and Marathi. Which can be useful for all. One should must visit this place to know more interesting informations. Don't miss the program that based out of plant, stars and galaxies!
  • Went with kids for the show on space and planets, it was pretty informative and nice, kids loved it. Though nice place but needs transformation with better technology and digitization. Crowd management by staff was poor.

Where to stay in Mumbai (Bombay)

In a cramped city like Mumbai, finding a budget hotel can present a serious challenge. Many business travelers and tourists choose to stay in South Mumbai, the oldest and richest neighborhood in the city. Accommodations here put you close to most top museums, restaurants, bars, art galleries, and shops. Proximity to major attractions comes at a premium price, though--not surprising for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. If you plan to visit on a tight budget, look for options near railway stations, but prepare for low-grade rooms and few or no amenities.
