This is basically a science museum displaying particularly the laws and applications of physics, astronomy, mechanical engineering. There is a small theater which features shows related to astronomy and biology. Entry prices are very cheap. Downsides:Toilets are OK (better to bring your own... More

Adults too will find the exhibits of interest as they are very well explained, and recall the science they learn't in school. The exhibits of the dinosaur and a life size mock up of the... More

This is very great place for young budding kids to easily learn about their basic concepts of physics and modern engineering!! It's is definitely not recommended to visit with friends, but a great place to take family in a weekend!

It was really an interesting and fulfilling visit to this science museum. I had gone there with my 10.5 year old son and 7 year old daughter. They both enjoyed the various experiments and the explanations, specially the pulleys. The science show conducted by a science student was also great. A very participative child in the audience had made it... More
