The place has some good models to understand basic concepts of physics like Bernoulli's principle, hydraulics, vertigo, wave motion, etc. There is a dark ride and panaromic move to understand human evolution. However, there are some gaps of lacunae in most of these models. The audio in the dark ride isn't clear. The edges of sections of panorama doesn't merge... More

A must visit place for the science lovers as well as the young children and teenagers. So many science related activities are showing there. Butterflies are kept in some AC habitat compartment. Fishes are kept in aquarium and so many science related shows are showing there but each shows needs entry ticket. Ropeway riding was so much fun for me

It is one of the Kolkata's worth attraction. It is a fascinating experience for all ages which showcases science and technology in a playful manner. It consumes one complete day hours to visit all activity quarters.It provides with a thrill, excitement, and amusement. I would recommend for a visit once.

Visited with family and kids and had a wonderful time. Entry through the cable car was great. If you have kids who are interested in science, take a whole days time to spend. My daughter ; aged 8 years took 4 hours to complete a hall and then we rushed through the others. Planning a second visit.

Nice place for entertainment and knowledge at the same time. You can spend more than half the day here with a lots of different types of shows and science related activities. Children as well as adults can spend good time here. It is good for family picnics also and for school picnics also.The dinosaur park is also worth seeing.
