It is fun to experiment with the exhibits, kids will enjoy it very much. For elders also, it is good to refresh the things you learnt long time back, or to find out that you remember only very little of that. :) For people with absolutely no science background also, it is a good place to visit once, you can...

The Visvesvaraya Industrial and technological museum basically displays the working of Physics. It has an auditorium for the study of the universe and the galaxy. It also has a 3D room. Entry to both places is separately charged. The 3D film on dinosaurs is nothing great and can be avoided. There is a lot of emphasize on Physics. An average... More

This is one of the good places especially for kids in Bangalore. They can learn it theoretically as well as practically. But what i observed when i was there is that almost 40% of the exhibits were not working. When they have good experiments i would like to suggest them to take it to a good level and maintain that...

Wherever you go in this 'prototype engineering laboratory' you will have learning with fun. Kids will be curious to see the cause and effects of articles and instruments while you will be busy explaining those principles of physics while secretly getting happy about your kids intelligence.

It's definitely one of the good places for kids where they can learn science stuff, not only theoretically, but practically as well. It's also fun for elder people, revisiting old concepts. :) Must watch.

Technological museums are not very heard of in India and therefore this museum at Bangalore commands its respect among its peers. It is located in the city center, not very far from MG Road metro station. Nearby attractions like Government Museum, Venkatappa Art Gallery and Government Aquarium makes up a whole day trip plan. It is hard to say when... More

This place is a whole day affair. There are four floors filled with interesting mechanisms, photographs, models, simulations etc. You need to stop, read, try out the models (some are live) and then move on. Take a lot of water and stuff to eat. There is a cafeteria on the top floor and place to sit and eat. For people... More
