This museum is like a text book in 3D. Our daughter really enjoyed the physics experiments. The small aquariums are well kept and so are their collection of snakes. We spent hours inside. The museum is located conviniently. The guards and attendants are most helpful. This visit rounded of with a visit to Mainland China ( the restaurant ) completed... More

We didn't have too much time, so could see the additional 'shows / demonstrations' (which seem to be the main attraction). We walked through the museum and found a fair number of the exhibits not working. The kids had fun all the same and considering it was inaugurated in 1978, the place is not bad at all. In order to...

This is in fact a permanent science exhibition centre attracting mainly the science students of schools. There are interesting & educative "Do-It-Yourself" exhibits which can potentially tickle the curiosity of the school going budding scientists. It is indeed a unique exhibition centre.

A must visit place for people of all ages. A lot of learning of scientific principles through interactive models, images, science shows, documentaries at the auditorium and much more.. One of the special attraction you should not miss here is a 'miniature Coal Mine'. If you're visiting Kolkata with children, must visit this place.

Thank Rajesh Kr. J
