“Not so great about it”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

I have visited the place in the past. The place remains same and so do the exhibits. The science show is good even though its bit old.
Overall worth a visit if its first time or after a long gap

“Not too good, Kids might like it”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

I enjoyed planetarium when I was kid but now i just got bored. Near by science museaum was much better. Kids night like it though. Intersting was to see were some old archived pictures of PM's and sciencetist. Was good to see ppl who contributed to India's developement. I found these more interesting then the planetarium show . The show was not well managed. At some places we could not see anything as it was happening at the back of our neck. Most of time they were showing only videos which we see them on youtube anyways...

“contents need to be updated”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is a very small planetarium when compared with others I’ve visited. Since it was a Monday only a handful of us were there for the 6 pm show. I felt that there was nothing comprehensive about the show. The contents simply skimmed over certain topics whilst ignoring the rest. The narration was strictly okay. This planetarium clearly needs to spruce up its act.

p.s: The restrooms are in utterly deplorable condition.

“Good Way to Kill Time”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

The planetarium felt like the program has not been updated in a long time. The narrative was OK, but the sound was not. The chairs were comfortable though. Over all, it was nice way to kill some extra time I had in hand. But if you don't have much time in Hyderabad, then it is better to forgo this sight. The day show tickets in English sell out fast. However, it is a breeze to get English evening show tickets, as few people show up.
