Well maintained. The space shows are very of great interest. A must visit for families with kids. It is within the heart of the city and well connected by all major means of transport. Need to keep track of the timings and show periods/ languages.

One of the rare museums that has been so well maintained. Right from the mine show to the dissected insects, it has almost everything a child prodigy could drem of.
