the science center in Mumbai is big and has lots of different exhibits and hands on activities but the stuff is and looks old and a lot of the displays don't work. It has the feel of a science center that's gone off in a corner to die. My 4 year old loves it even if 1/2 of the stuff... More

I wonder why this place is not very famous.Though it's infrastructure is in a deteriorating phase,some of the demonstrations are so interesting that kids surely get surprised.the entry charges r very nominal(₹40only).Apart from it,there's a fee of ₹25 for a 3D science show n ₹75 for a 45 min show in their auditorium.If u want ur child to be enrolled...

Nehru centre has a world class planetarium with 4 daily shows out of which only 1 is in English, at 3 pm. The show is informative. We saw one titled Violent Universe. I liked it except some parts when the background music was so loud that it overshadowed the narration. What I loved though was an exhibition called Discovery of... More

The science center is in the heart of the city at Worli. You have parking space for 2 and 4 wheelers if you arrive early at 10 a.m. One mistake we made was to look at the science experiences in the garden and then moving onto the actual science center and the IMAX like experience at the Science Odyssey. Check... More

A great place in Mumbai to spend a day. Yes, it requires one complete day to get a good feel of it and to analyze the various exhibits there. And you have to see the show at Dome theatre presentation too. They have a 3D show which is extremely primitive and needs to get in sink with current times. But... More

I was all excited to take my young ones for some exhilarating science phenomenon. However, badly kept devices, ill maintained facilities, unruly crowd and no aircon kept me guessing why did I ever thought of coming here. Half the people were just wandering there, not knowing the importance. Must say Delhi science centre is so much better. If you value... More
