The quality of the food is average. Ladies'... More

I must say that this is one of the great attractions of Bangalore. While it is a powerhouse of knowledge and fun for young children, I must admit that it can get exciting for adults of all ages as well. In terms of content and the sheer number of exhibits, I am sure it can match any medium sized museum... More

I visited this place with my few relatives and there is lots of interesting stuff for kids and particularly students in science who can relate to things and the various theories outlined here. Would definitely suggest a place to be visited in Bangalore.

There are a lot of scientific exhibits, from many old inventions, machinery to a few latest. This tends to be crowded on weekends, so weekdays may be good to visit. Kids can try many exhibits too. There are short movie shows too. This is comparable to, probably better than Nemo in Amsterdam, but Nemo tickets are quite expensive.

It has improved and there attempts to allow youngsters t o try hands on activities. It still draws schools and children which is a good thing-an interesting introduction to science and technology
