“Space revisited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

The scope of the work undertaken by the scientists are shown in simple yet in realistic methods in the Museum, so that all who visit it will benefit. The shows in the different languages makes it even a better place to visit if you go to Kolkata

“A great idea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

BITM is one of the most unique science museums in India. It boasts of various exhibits and a well stocked library. The best part is the under ground coal mine which really depicts the dangers and rigours of working in a coal mine. Definitely worth a visit especially for the kids in school.

“EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2010

I would request all Science students to atleast watch the place once in their lifetime. I have been to almost all place of Kolkata, but I found BITM as the best and most informative place in the heart of Kolkata, even much better than Science City and Indian Museum.
