"Awesome place; must visit for tourists"

A, Hyderabad

I was blown away by seeing this place, it is huge and it is beautiful, I am sure it is India's biggest science city. We went to the science center and thoroughly enjoyed the 3D vision, Time Machine, Mirror Magic and not to forget an interesting robot guiding us at the science center. Science Park was fun enjoyed gravity coaster, musical fountain, cable cars and butterfly nursery. We had an amazing full day knowledgeable tour. It is a must visit.

Science City in Kolkata is the largest centre of science in the sub continent. It is located on EM Bypass road. It is a must visit place for all visiting Kolkata. It is really worth visiting.

"Good place for children."

Nittin, Mumbai

Good place to visit with children. There are a lot of instruments which are totally based on the logics of science. Very informative place for students. The instruments are kept under a dome shaped building. Few instruments use pipes which is entirely spread throughout the dome structure!! They make things easily understandable by making logics fun for students!! They involve students physically as well and mentally in the instruments.
