  • An escalator takes them up to the first gallery on the third floor - Our Science and Technology Heritage. Indian Heritage in Science & Technology has a long history of 4500 years. The exhibition on "Our Science and Technology Heritage" depicts how, in course of time, side by side with art and literature, there grew up on Indian soil, a very rich scientific and technological culture. In ancient Sanskrit texts, we can find shades of twentieth century thinking. Scientific ideas grew in Indian minds more than two thousand five hundred years ago. Concepts of matter, atomism and cosmic evolution were recorded for posterity. It was also in India that the concept of zero gained meaning. The present day numerals, Powers of ten, the golden rule of three, square root and cube root were worked out 1500 years ago and took 1000 years to reach Europe. This Gallery is the latest in the Centre and was inaugurated by the Secretary to the Ministry of Culture, Government of India, Shri Jawhar Sircar on 21 October 2009. Next is a gallery on Human Biology - the miracle of Human Life. The gallery aims to portray the human body in all its aspects: anatomical, physiological, biochemical, structural, functional and systemic. The concept for the gallery arose out of the feedback that the Centre had been receiving from its visitors, to set up more exhibits on the Human Body, its structure and functioning. The Human Body is something, which we all possess and are familiar with, but at the same time, is an eternal source of mystery. From this gallery visitor comes down to an exciting gallery on prehistoric life, featuring several life sized and scaled animated robotic models of dinosaurs and other long extinct creatures in their natural ambience. The supporting panel exhibition provides ample information about origin of Earth, geological changes that occurred on earth through ages, evolution of atmosphere, origin of life in water, spread of life on land, early life forms, early mass extinctions and so on. The exhibition tries to answer several mind-boggling questions that we all ask at times, as how did life originate on our planet? Where did it evolve? Who are our ancestors? Is there life on other planets? Will man survive? And so on. The Penny-farthing was gifted by the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. The next Gallery is Fun Science. This gallery is most liked by the younger visitors because this is full of hands-on exhibits explaining the fundamentals of science. Science has always been a subject which has been dealt with a lot of seriousness in schools. This text bookish approach has made science a very drab and uninteresting subject in the impressionable minds of young children. This gallery seeks to escape from this trap by the method of KISMIF (Keep It Simple- Make It Fun). A whole world of wonder and amazement awaits the visitors here with over a hundred interactive hands-on exhibits. This gallery also houses a 50-seater 3D movie hall which provides a lot of entertainment and thrill. Incidentally, this 3D hall is being upgraded this year with state-of-the-art equipment from the United States so as to provide a fully immersive experience to the viewers.
  • First the ticket price for an Adult(Me) Entrance : 40 3D Film Show : 25 SOS(Science of Sphere) : 25 SDL(Sci. Demonstration Lecture) 10 Note: (Taramandal Show is for children only) Got the ticket in 100Rs. First show of SOS was at 11:00 Am And was good feeling like Obama seating in white House and watching whats going on Earth!! Than 3D Film show was at 11:30 Am And was not so good Becoz Small Screen in the Room and feeling like someone has started 3GP Video film instead of HD. So Not So Good. Than SDL Was at 12:00 Pm and it was also not so good. And after that everything deserve to be seen... Over well Experience was Good and you should visit there Once. Cloack Room is available free of cost and inside museum toilet is also their and water is also available!! Went there from Pragti Maidan metro Station by walking. And get back by Indarprasth Metro station by walking from Museum.
  • If you are looking for something geeky, surely this is your place. The ticket price is very economical that is Rs40. If you want to take most out of it I suggest to reach here by the time when the centre opens as it gets closed by 5pm. The food corner is also low budget here. Deboard at PRAGATI MAIDAN METRO STATION and hire an auto to NSC (National Science Centre)
  • Very nice place for kids and adults to learn collectively about the scientific developments that has contributed to our society from time to time. The eatery serves delicious food at a very reasonable price. Loved the place a lot
