It was a very enjoyable experience.It has a nice dome, the movie was a memorable experience, it starts off with two stars LMS and HMS stars talking about the wonders of the universe.The movie also details the life and achievements of world renown astrologer Chandrasekhar S.Chandra is well known for his discovery in 1930, during his voyage from India to England, of a limit on the mass of a star that can become, in its terminal stage, a white dwarf. The limit, known as the Chandrasekhar limit (1.44 solar mass), is hailed as one of the most important discoveries of the twentieth century, since it paved the way to the discovery of the other two presently known terminal stages of a star: neutron stars and black holes.The movie is very educational and entertaining.The Nehru museum is nicely maintained with books,photos and gifts from neighboring countries on display.It offers a glimpse into the life of Nehru as Prime Minister of Independent India.All in all a wonderful experience

This is the only planetarium in and around Delhi. Its got a nice dome and projection system but the whole infrastructure seems to be really old. Seats are old, torn, sometimes wobbly. Sound system is not that great either. Queue management is poor and you need to run a grab a seat once the doors open. If not maintained better, its sure to die its own death like most other museums in Delhi.

Its not a NASA run facility, so keep the expectations accordingly. The place is now highly improved and there are few things that are worth the visit. The movie in the planetarium is a good experience. Check the show timing before you reach there. There is also a problem of parking, so plan accordingly.

To be in a planetarium & see a show on the night sky, the planets, the stars, the galaxies, the universe has always excited me since childhood. Seeing the same in my son's eye is like reliving the past.
