I consider this a hidden gem, as many are unaware of it. They often visit the Nehru Planetarium, without walking up to the first floor to visit the India Discovery Centre located just adjacent to it. This is truly a place where you either discover things you never knew about or know more about things you just knew fleetingly. India's... More

This can be an excellent place to visit and spend a good quality time with lot of learning. But absence of Air conditioned environment and non function of many equipments takes the fun away.

It is a good place and children with love for science will enjoy this place. best to go with a larger kid group too and take time to read the different sections and enjoy the rest. The cafeteria is not great but the different sections and areas are worth a one time trip for sure.
