I took my children for a visit to this museum and got hooked to the DIY stuff there. I went back twice with my children for another complete round of feel good factor. A must for all parents of Kolkata.

A person of scientific inquisitiveness would find this place very interesting. Lots of puzzles, science experiments to try on. A fun loving place and a learning experience for the kids. Even adults would find the place quite interesting. Experiments are from school text books to practical try out, kids and students would definitely love this place
