Nice place to visit in Mumbai, if you want your trip to be informative too. Plan can be made to visit the Planetarium, Nehru center and Nehru science centre in one day. If you want to take photographs inside the planetarium do it once before the show starts, since you will be asked to leave the venue and not allowed... More

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

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.

Built in 1977, Nehru Planetarium is as old as I am, yet it is timeless and gives same joy as I had as a kid. I visited almost after 25 years and felt nostalgic about the iconic building, the exhibits and the dome itself! Planetary weighing scales, lunar landscape, the toy shop and the Mumbai skyline around the dome is... More
