It was my 7th time of visiting Nehru Planetarium...
Loved it..
Truth is I didn't understand the movie at all, but the presentation & editing of the movie was best.
I loved that part when all the stars fall down..
I screamed a lot.
Infra & intra is best..
Special part is that Hall has replica's of world's all monuments.
It was great to watch galexy movie in Nehru Planetarium...

Though I thought the planetarium would not be crowded on a weekday, a school group was there the first time we tried to go and the show was sold out. So the second time we got the tickets in advance. There is a gift shop with knowledgeable staff where you can get science kits, charts, books etc. They let you into the building only 30 minutes before the show and if the show is full, as it was when we went, that means 200 or so people are filing in. Then for part of that time there is someone explaining something in the center of the hall, so one has to listen or at least be quiet so that others can listen. This leaves very little time to roam around and see the stuff on your own, or check your weight on the different planets, especially considering there are so many others and so little time. There aren't very many exhibits, actually - but still one feels rushed while looking at them.

My daughter liked the show but I found it too technical and jam-packed.

Would we go again? Sure. It is a decent way to spend an hour and the price is not bad. Whether it is the same show or a different one my daughter will enjoy it, so why not? It is not every day you can see so many stars, especially if you live in a light-polluted city. Ten minutes away you can visit the Science Center.

For a unique way to get back in touch with your inner child, visit this place. However the narrative is placed neither for young kids or for beginners - its targeted for people who already know a little bit about the Universe (in the scientific sense).
Unfortunately doesn't get me excited about watching the stars tonight, as do other planetoriums in other parts of the world.
Beware of squealing children during weekdays though.
Not bad to kill an hour between shopping..
