i will rate only good rating. though by way of planetarium its good but a lot of improvement is needed. There is a good park but needs maintenance. The science models displayed in the park are not functioning.

Useful and understandable to kids above 8-10 years, as they have video show of 20-30 min in 3-4 language including Hindi and English at different timings in a day.
