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.

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

I have been here as a 10 year old on a school picnic... all the way to now, to show this to my 5 year old children. This is a treasure in Mumbai - genuinely creates an interest in science and is fit for all ages.
