The Nehru Planetarium opened over 50 years ago, and this shows in various areas. To begin with we had a very rude presenter who explained the visitors about the galaxy. It is obvious that such places would have kids around, and obviously there would be noise in this case. Regarding the sky show, it started off with a very badly... More

This is one of the places which should be on the list of places to visit in Mumbai. It gives a great experience to see the science behind astronomy, and stars. It holds show every day in multiple languages teaching us about the many facts that exist in the world. The main attraction here is the Soyuz- T10 that carried... More

But When we saw the "Hindi show" It had lots of technical words(Jargons) and technical terms spoken in pure hindi only !! It is not soo understandable to the Local Crowd ! We being native hindi speakers had a... More

It is best to plan your visit well in advance. We booked the tickets online 2 days before our visit on 24th May. Although the Sky theatre is 500 seater, only about 130 tickets are available for online booking. When we booked our tickets online, we could only get them for the 12:00 noon show "Invaders of Mars" (Hindi). When... More
