All that we study in books but don't know how things work can be seen. If you have a full day and thirst of knowledge in science, it is a must visit. All the scientific phenomenon are explained practically. But needs time to study and understand.

A must visit for tourist, specially for those who all are travelling with kids. A good museum turned into a great museum after its last renovation. So much to see inside that one should have at least 2-3 hours in hand.

BITM is one of the unique science museums in India. Different kinds of exhibits, a very well stocked library, an under ground coal mine, completely worth a visit especially for the kids in school interested in Science. I would recommend BITM over Science City and Indian Museum.

The first of the science & technology museums to dot the Indian landscape. It's vision to popularise science among the common man and non science public is unique. Lovely dioramas & working models to get you involved while you learn! Some more maintenance could do well, but it is still a pride of place for science students of Kolkata &... More
