“Good place if you want to spend 1-2 hours away from the beach.”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We landed at this place when were were searching for something else. We decided to go in since it was pretty hot outside :).

It is very close to the Miramar beach. Lot of equipment outside seems to be in disrepair. They have a 3D show and a planets show - but shows are not bad. But if you have seen similar shows outside India (US, Singapore, etc.) you will be disappointed.

There is no cafeteria. There there is a small shop-like thing near the ticket counter - we were able to buy ice cream there.

Some exhibits were very nice. he tickets are reasonably priced. Plenty of parking space is available.

“The preserved body of Francis of Assissi?”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Goa is lush green. Visitthe church in God where the saint lays with a full view of his hand. The evening canal cruises are cheap and full of different shows....nice

“A good place for kids and adults”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is good place for both the kids and adults. Scientific principles and theories are explained in a fun way. This place also has a 3d Movie Screening Theater and a planetarium. In the garden area one can see life size replicas of Pre historic Animals (A Dinosaur at the entrance area), a mammoth and many more. The fun gallery helps one understands scientific principles in a fun interactive way.

Over all worth a visit for not only locals but tourists too.

Incidentally this was the thirds Science Centre I had visited. I have been to the one in Delhi and Lucknow many times. Both these do not have a planetarium.
