Lot of interesting things which gives you a whole new dimension of understanding many things. Need at least 3-4 hours for visiting the... More

This is the only place in Delhi where school kids can go and have a bit of fun. Otherwise, Delhi has nothing to offer to kids. Most of the times I was more than cautious to protect Kids in Delhi as Delhi is not at all a place for Tourists.

The National Science Centre is a constituent unit of the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) which is an autonomous body under the Ministry of Culture of the Government of India.

Having been to Delhi a half dozen times already on business, I had already seen the major (and perhaps minor) tourist attractions. As an engineer I've always enjoyed science museums, so when I heard there was one in Delhi, I had to check it out. It's only about 30 INR for admission and it's the same rate for locals and... More
