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.
