If you are an aviation enthusiast, you have to go there. There are a lot of civil and military aircrafts, parts and signs explaining the history of each item. Very good and interesting.

This is a pretty old museum which has been updated recently. The ground floor devoted to mech eng is really old but the ball circuit is still fascinating to watch. The 1st and 2nd floors have exhibits on light, space etc, some of which are excellent, Some don't work. Top floor has biotech stuff, too detailed for many lay people.

Many of the interactive exhibits do not work. Pieces missing or broken, system restart required - and no one from staff is anywhere in sight. The "fun science" part, however, are great for both kids and adults.

Wonderful place to learn simple mechanisms for young and old alike. The museum has kept itself upto date with new technology and has evolved from an engineering to all science museum.
