“Science lovers paradise”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

BITM has lots of science experiments which make it a fun place. The shows are also good. But would recommend a day in Science City over this.

“Birla Industrial and Technological Museum – A Place for Inquisitive Minds at Kolkata”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

I had visited Birla Industrial and Technological Museum in Kolkata in the past but went this time especially for the children of my sister as I considered it an appropriate place for growing up children.

Entry ticket was Rs.15 per head and there were a host of interests for the children like scientific shows including the Taramandal, transportations, 3D shows, and some special shows as well.

Though you have to pay tickets for each of them separately, some of them are worth the expenses. The museum is also full of unlimited scientific fun that can make the mind far more inquisitive. People that find it difficult assimilating scientific phenomena should visit the place.

Don’t forget to reach there by 11 AM or else time may not be enough to cover all the exquisite offerings the place has.

“Excellent for kids”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

The kids section on the 2nd floor is fantastic, however some of the older science exhibits in the other building were not working or needed to be updated. The coal mine is a unique experience.

“A place for all inquisitive minds”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

I have reached with my family at 2 p.m. on 28th Dec'12. Entry ticket is Rs.15/ per head.There are various scientific shows such as Taramandal, 3D shows, Transportation,etc those have different timings & different rate of tickets.But most of the shows are houseful.I have managed two shows tickets: 1) Super cool bodies @ Rs.4/head
2) Coal mine @Rs.10/head.
The museum is full of unlimited scientific fun which makes your mind more inquisitive.The shows are spectacular with beautiful presentation & scientific explanations.
As the museum closes at 5.30 p.m. I can not see & enjoy all the shows and theme.
next time, I decide to visit it at 11 a.m.
