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

For anybody who has not seen big science museums, this is a great place to visit. Expected audience is school children under 16. Nehru center has an IMAX theater which is a must. Along with the movie at this theatre, this is a good one full day affair.

A center described as a nurturing spot for young minds - wanting to mould them into a scientific spirit but effectively ending up gathering mold. I'd been here in 1996 as part of an educational tour. Had a guide who explained the workings of the displays. Got me excited enough in Science. I thought the same would be applicable to... More
