The Dome show is the only thing that's worth mentioning in the planetarium. If I am not mistaken, this show has been going on for 30 years. They have made a few updates but overall it's very exciting for younger kids. It's worth visiting once for sure. I hope they improve the center and make it more exciting for young... More

Its a must visit place for all tourists. Located around Haji Ali after Bandra. It's a science show about planets in 3D. There is 20 mins of lecture before the show begin, and total with show is 1 hour approx. tickets are very cheap. Everyone should visit and understand all about planets and its movements around earth.

I went to see the show with my family. Though my son was excited and felt happy, I felt that the content of the show could have been made much more interesting. The ticket price is really cheap so it is worth going and watching for the 1st time. The seats are average and not very comfortable

If you are visiting Mumbai as tourist, then go ahead to see this. Its good from inside. Lots of stuffs they have inside. You can take kids along with you and enjoy the sea world. I had visited this long back, don't know what all they have changed now but it was good experience there.
