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

Had been there with my 6 year old daughter on a summer vacation day and it was a pleasant experience. Online booking would be recommended especially on weekends. The show was nice. There was a 10 minute introduction on our solar system followed by 45 minutes of main show. The hall itself is air-conditioned. It also has a place where... More

It brings back memories of how my parents took me there when I was a little boy. Now I am taking my kids to visit the place. Must say that the authorities are doing a good job in maintaining the place. A nice, cool and peaceful place. Lovely view of the skyline

i have been trying to find the business days/ holidays but couldn't get that simple info at all. I have to go there all the way but without knowing the working days, it's quite painful to drive there with the kids and finding it closed.

Gets crowded during weekends and holiday season as the entry fees are cheap. A little dated. Can be interesting to older kids and not for the younger ones who would not understand wee bit of astronomy.

Nehru planetarium - http://nehru-centre.org/planetarium/ is a good place for curious kids wanting to learn about planets and solar system. One can easily spend 2-3 hours including the "Discovery of India" and Art gallery nearby.

It is an interesting place for children eager to learn about planets. We along with family and friends went for the show Invaders of Mars. Although I pretty liked it but I guess my kids were too small to understand it and would advice parents to brief their kids a day before the type of show you planning to visit... More
