What a place! 4 storey building packed with engineering and science. You lose track of time. I had to revisit a second time to finish seeing all the artifacts at display. And all the models are moving models, so you can play to your heart's content. Get you see science and engineering in action!

Take your kid after he/she has a certain amount of exposure to science and its principle. This place will sharpen your kid's interest in the same. Lot of working models and exhibits to explore. Some might not work, but then your kid will lovely whatever is on display there at that time. Highly Recommended!

The museum is situated at Kasturba Road in the sylvan surroundings of Cubbon Park surrounded by stately buildings like Vidhan Soudha, High court etc. It is just 5 kms from City Railway & Bus station..It has an entry fee of Rs-40 & there are shows (Taramandal etc) which has separate tickets..shows are good for learning..
