It is a fantastic science museum, covering variety of subjects of science along with fun. Many experiments give information about the subject in enjoyable mood and not technical boredom of science. It is an interesting museum for kids as well as adults and for those who love science and who do not.

Brilliant display of various scientific inventions, experiments etc. Kids would love to spend time there. This is near MG road so access is good. There are various sections for different branches of science. Sometimes there will be nice events organised where kids can participate and demonstrate their knowledge in science.

The museum is really informative with rocket science, fun science, and electro-technic galleries, a 3D theater and a "science for Children" gallery.

The young girls working the front desk can't answer half of your questions about the island. Also, you're not allowed to bring friends over into your room. Absolutely ridiculous rules and if you question them they will tell you to "feel free to check out".

We spent the morning here with our two kids (ages 5 and 7), who had a great time exploring science concepts. We focused on two sections of the museum that were especially good for their ages--the children's section on the top floor and the Fun Science hall. They enjoyed all the hands-on activities, which were appropriate for their ages (while... More

Been to this museum many a times since last 20years. Best for the children and adults to teach children. You can find things used in the ancient times and the science museum covers each and every minute things to learn. We are allowed to press the buttons given for every concept, then we can know how it works.. One can... More

ITs amazing to find the VIT Museum still functioning amazingly well over the past twenty odd years since my last visit. Fascinating insights into mechanical machines and electricity and even math, dinosaurs and communication are available for the young and the not so scientifically literate adults! Plan to spend the whole day here for some truly interesting learning. Of course... More
