It explains the concepts of science in a simple and fun way. - "Energy ball" is not that great and could be left out. - There are models of ancient India like harrapan civilization, telegram office etc. - "Information &...

It is good... really good and educative but why it fails to match international standards is the Apathy of its visitors towards it. People should respect the fact that its for education and not for their nonsensical behaviour & that they have no right to destruct the exhibits. Its fun to play with some of them but don't destroy them.... More

I must say i had my doubts before visiting this place but it was a really nice experience to visit NSC. It is located near Pragati Maidan which is well connected through the metro. From there you can get an auto and ask for Gate no. 2 of NSC. The tickets costs around INR 40/person along with that there are... More

Children should always visit this place since it gives them opportunity to experiment the science with ease. It is really a fun for each adult also.. God these many aspects of science are to be learned?

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

This place is slightly old but still insightful to kids/students. Opposite to Bhairon Mandir, it can be visited after the temple visit, and then the nearby handicrafts museum can be visited in the evening, and you'll not regret this day spent in Delhi. Many demonstrations are amazing to elders as well. Has a heritage walk that highlights Indian achievements in... 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
