  • It is very good place to visit. This place offers fun to you and your kids as well as information about science at same time. The planetarium & 3D shows are wonderful. Only one thing is missing here is a good eatery.
  • Science loving people will like this place. One of most happening place of patna. You can feel magic of science here. But many apparatus are not in working condition. 3D shows are good enough..
  • Fun and learning for the kids It is a nice center for kids, to learn about interesting aspects of science. Kids can easily spend the whole day there. The center guides are always ready to help. The space show is amazing, with latest programmes. In fact, it beats the dedicated space center, the planetarium. The 3D show could be better though - not sure if the program was meant for big screen.
  • A nice place for kids and students. They have so many interesting games. They have a lot of science experiments. It is great place for learning while having fun. A must go place for a curious person.
