  • It is a good place for children who have not seen planetariums outside Bihar. Can visit once if you want to enhance your knowledge on stars. 
  • I really think how much Patna has to deliver. Go places and you will find something exceptional. And so is this planetarium. Easily described the complexity of universe. 
  • You will have an extra ordinary experience of knowledge and atmosphere. It is a must visit attractions. There are less number of such places in the country and it is one of its own kind.
