  • Very good place for educational purposes. The exhibits are very good with very good varieties and genres on display. One of the best museums in India. From Jurassic era to Wright brothers, from Fighter jets to Space exhibits, its just a great place for kids and adults alike to learn and explore. Physics, biology, etc are also covered, the best part is that you can learn by doing most of the exhibits.
  • Oh it is nice. But it will consume more time because it is broader and taller. Having different sections. Its nice with mechanical. Electronic. Playing. You have to visit this once in your life because it is technological heaven
  • The ground floor consists of the exhibitions of different engines ( they even have a rocket engine ) . As we progress upwards the exhibitions get boring , with the exhibitions on biology the most boring of the lot. There's a canteen on the top floor which is a good thing cause it takes more than 1.5 hours to get there after going through all the exhibitions. It's a great place to visit with kids as it has a lot of fun activities entirely based on the principles of physics. The upper floor consists of exhibits for high schoolers which mainly focuses on electricity and magnetism . In short it's a great place for the young and inquisitive minds.
  • A must seen museum for both kids and adults. There are several experimental science made of daily using tool, those will help people to understand science behind such tools. Has a special section for kids, which will help kids to entertain and learn. Need to spend at least 2 hours to cover entire museum. May feel rush during weekends and holidays.
  • Nice place to visit in Bangalore. Consumes more time . Science was well explained here . Well maintained. They divided the museum section wise. For basic science knowledge with practical experience everyone must visit here. To spend time lots of places available near by Museum
