This is a paradise for Science enthusiasts, especially for kids and college students. I wish there could be an annual membership scheme for regular activities in this Museum, with active participation and interested individuals.

Went with a friend and two kids and the two kids had a whale of a time at the new children's wing,only wish they had installed an air conditioner too. In the humid Calcutta weather,that is a must. Has some birds and fishes too. Other sections of the museum are interesting but need renovation.Definately worth a visit.

This used to be the usual place to go on a school excursion. And how, we looked forward to it! Well, nothing's really changed, because it still has the same attraction for my daughter!

Went to this museum with some school kids who we teach on behalf of an NGO as a freelance. Great place, hospitality is awesome. Kids just loved all that were displayed by the Musuem authority. Only drawback is there is no point taking kids to this place who are yet to study the basics of physical/chemical science.
