One of the better science museums in India. The displays and shows are well designed and displayed. The place is a bit of run-down could use more maintenance. However if you are a science and technology enthusiast, it is worth a visit.

Would recommend the place over a lot of Science Museums that I have seen the in past, including Singapore. The displays and shows are nice and the staff good. The place is a bit of run-down and dirty, but still has some good science concepts that you can see and learn.

This is an unique museum which is a learning experience not only for children but also for adults. Beautifully maintained and enlightening. You must try the "Coal mine" and both the"Bubble" as well as the "Fire" show once you visit this place.

Please visit this place if you have school-going children. All the info are available in their website, including timings, fees, programs, etc. If you reside in Kolkata, try to enrol your kid to one of their many summer programs.
