When the last time I had gone to the Planetarium, it was when I was in my school. Now after 15 years when I go back to his place with my little nephews and niece, ITS THE SAME!!! Worth a miss. Unless you are sure that a little member from your friend or family circuit will enjoy this one.

A true competitor to Birla Planetorium in Kolkatta. Nehru Planeterium in Worli is a must visit for adults and growing up kids to educate them on the wonders of what lies beyond this earth that we reside in.

Nehru Planetarium is a must see for child age above 7 years. Children below 7 may find it boring, though it may give them an insight to our planet, and may excite them a lot. There shall be an orientation for about 15 minutes, after which the audience is guided to sky theater where they see the movie on a... More

We find the planetarium very informative as well as interesting. We were also lucky to able to attend the "space show" which is conducted everyday in Hindi, Marathi and... More
