One of the planetrium opened in Mumbai in late seventies. If you have interest in study of the planets it is worth a visit, Otherwise this one place where you can fall asleep in the cold atmosphere by the airconditioners

This is a one of a kind experience and only Nehru planetarium offers it. I am referring to the dome shaped screen on the ceiling of this theatre where one can see the stars ,planets etc on a screen which simulates the sky. If astronomy ,star and planet gazing ,celestial bodies interest you this is the place to be.
