The centre has expanded into a centre for scientific study of astronomy. Scientists and scholars regularly meet for lectures and discussions to discuss the various astronomical events. Special...

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

One was about the gravitational information on different planets and second and the best one was the show which has been created with lots of creatively even though some part of it... 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.
