It is not just a museum but it is a wonderful basic science laboratory. Each and every setup in the museum is self explanatory and one can understand concepts and workings of instruments which are designed using basic principles of physics. Love to visit again and again with children.

IT has always been an attraction in bangalore and this Institute is the oldest college for engineers and those who love technology is a place to visit. It is Karnataka govt owned and the maintenance is not very good. But one will be overwhelmed by the history of technology evolution.

If your kids are small like 4 to 7 yrs old, this is best time for them to take - their fundamentals will be strong - for adults this place is to clarify doubts related to technology (Why/How it works)
