A great place to bring children to for both fun and educational purposes, and covers a wide range of the sciences; biology, chemistry, history of Indian sciences, earth sciences, palaeontology, hydrology etc. I was impressed by the sheer volume of interactive displays towards the end of the museum that are child-friendly. There is a canteen that may look a little... More

i took my family to NSC last week.i was the one who insisted on taking them there as i had fond memories of this place from my childhood. To my shock, absolutely nothing has changed. in fact the wear and tear has taken its toll on the place. first of all many games, machines, experiments were not in working order.... More

This place brings such nostalgia. Used to be a must on the school picnics and family picnics as well. A nice place for school kids. They have variety of models to explain some of the important science phenomenons. It has lost of activities and info movies as well. Used to go there almost every year in early 2000s.

Great place for learning. My child loved this place. But it Really needs repairing and maintainence. Most of models not working or broken. What ever is remaining kids still enjoy and if maintained nicely it can be one great place for learning. Still worth going at least once.
