Was aware of the Museum and had checked the website and read other reviews TA ... which made a visit to the museum even more necessary for my daughter!
I guess that probably the expectations had been raised to very high levels that felt a bit let down at the museum.
Yes certain concepts were very well presented... specially the Gravity and Water galleries were truly well thought of and presented.Must really commend TOM EGAN ... the man behind designing the water gallery which actually gives a child's learning a complete free flow...just like that of water!
Besides the two mentioned galleries ... the rest of the place gives the impression to have been built keeping in mind children of filthy rich families ... who do not do a single chore on their own and have servants or helpers to do everything for them.
The place infact .. the next day of Diwali ... had more maids accompanying the kids than their parents!... seriously ... what a shame ... it just defeats the whole purpose of visiting such a place in the first place!
There were supposed to be supervisors everywhere helping the children explore and learn ... but there were too and too preoccupied amongst themselves to be of any help at all.
There was a birthday party at the time we visited ... and visiting at such a time is another curse ... as it seemed to be a just another "NETWORKING" meet for the power parents ... which also kept the museum staff more than busy.
The entry fee of 500 per child and 200 per adult is expensive against what is offered ... and did like the idea to pay another 200 to visit another gallery,within the same premises.
The magnetic gear wall was some fun and the glass painting wall were some other sparks in the museum ... which could be further bettered and similar be further added.Was totally lost with the F1 pit stop and the build-a-city.Nobody bothered with the Board Build stuff and neither did the staff present.
It is a good thought ... which is hit by poor execution,but will still give credit to the people behind it to have at least done something with their imagination!
Was actually let down with the promises being served on their website but with it being the one of its kind museum in the country,it will be frequented upon by curious parents wanting to try something new for their children!
Will suggest them to seriously rethink on allowing birthday parties in the museum or at least have segregated areas for the same,to let serious visitors enjoy more!
