See the highlights of the big, bustling city of Kolkata on an easy full-day trip. Experience the culture and beautiful architecture of the city three ways: via car, on food, and by boat along the Hooghly River. This is a private tour, so you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide. Fit a lot of sightseeing into one day without worrying about hailing taxis or other logistics.

This is a highly modernistic complex with lots to see and do. The entrance gate brings you into a well-tended garden with pools and animated sculptures driven by water. A cable-car ride takes visitors over the whole complex. One of the buildings, dealing with life sciences, was not open, but in the time we had we got to see plenty. We visited the space and technology building and found the displays extremely informative and well put together. The demonstrations of physics and mechanics using hands-on installations were a lot of fun, and informative too. One great surprise was an up-to-the-day exhibition of the Corona virus, which in mid-February was only just revealing its potential as a pandemic. There were two staff posted at the display to answer questions. This exhibit alone indicated to us the devotion and interest of the museum staff. The upper part of the building was laid out in a descending spiral where the exhibits were based on powers of 10 - magnifying upwards to the entire universe and downwards to the sub-atomic world. We can highly recommend Science City and hope that the building we couldn't visit will soon be open.

Science City; one of the finest and the largest science museums in the world which provides a fun way of learning was inaugurated in 1997. Under the National Council of Science Museums, the Science City in Kolkata is the largest science center in the entire Indian Subcontinent . .The science city is a perfect blend of education with fun. There is a special section dedicated to the aquatic world wherein you can learn every minute detail about various water animals. Some of the most exotic fishes can be seen in these aquariums. The ground floor of the science city comprises of some optical illusions which are very interesting to look at. It is always so much fun to watch yourself taking a variety of shapes in front of the optical mirrors. It is a favourite amongst kids & adults as well.. During our visit we enjoyed the experiments about the energy ball, ocean waves, quick sand & time machines, which are favourite amongst all the visitors. It also gave us an opportunity to travel to outer space from where we could travel back in time and also entered the age of dinosaurs by being a part of the artificial Jurassic Park. We tried the ropeway as well to get a bird's eye view of the city. Thus science city offered us phenomenal experience & made our holiday worth it.
