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.

This place is commonly known as Birla Taramandal. There is a entry fee & there is separate price for different shows.They have a galaxy show which is quite famous & really great to watch. Another atraction is they have actual moon stone. A nice place to visit with your children.

Wonderful knowledge incubator for Kids where science and technology models are displayed. Visual display of examples are best way to understand science. At times they do run competitions and award the talent.

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.

The Birla meuseum is average. Entry fee is low... However, quite a few shows at the meuseum are good and attracts a lot of visitor. The authorities should increase the capacity as the seats get sold off very quickly for the shows. The newly added kids zone is fabulous and is a major attraction at the place.

It is probably first of its kind industrial & technological museum set up by famous Birla family & subsequently handed over to Govt. of India. It contains experiments which come in our day-to-day life. Must see for persons of all ages, specially children.

The first thing that you would like about BITM is that it is very well maintained unlike Science City, which has the potential, space but due to lack of proper administration the place is in shambles now. The museum came into existence in 1959 under the guidance of Dr. B.C. Roy, the then Chief Minister of West Bengal, and Shri... More

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.
