  • Very nice place. Must visit for kids. Excellent science learning. Lots of thought process in making. Loved it. Most of the experiments are in working condition. Go by noon, evening it gets crowded. 40 Rs for parking car. Tickets range from 150 to 325.
  • Good place to visit with family. Specially recommended for children above 4 years. It's taking more than 2 hours to Cover all exhibits in the museum. It's little bit hot inside, it would be better if Ac's or fans works continuously all over.
