"Nice to all age group"

2 months ago
A great place to visit direct bus to go. Clean and nice place both for young and grown ups. From small rides to hitech attractions all available. Take one day off for it as its a full day vacation over there and may be less to view all.

"A must visit for everyone"

A very good place to visit. So many attractions are there that you need a full day to see all of them. 3D shows is a must see. Foods available for purchase inside science city.

"Never stops amazing us"

Jan 7, 2015
Science City is a must visit spot for any tourist who has some spare time in Kolkata. For a nominal fee, one can enjoy the Ropeway ride, a 3D show that is really exciting and a space theatre documentary movie. There are more to it-Mirror mazes, butterfly cages, cool high school science experiments on display and a very nice Mono-cycle which is basically like a cycle at some altitude which is paddled and moved on a single metal sheath.
The food inside is not very good, but ice cream and tea are welcome choices. There is a Naval centre that displays models of old age to modern hi tech ships and submarines. Science City has something for everyone.

"Scientific, entertaining things are there to learn about"

Sep 28, 2014
Full paisa vasool. Scientific, entertaining things are there to learn about, you read in books. You have to carry water and some food(my advice). Visit this place if you want to know something more about science. The show is also good.

"knowledge through exhibitions"

Aug 5, 2014
Science city is one of the largest science center in India.
There are many interesting exhibitions like freshwater aquarium, butterfly exhibit, tilting tables, mirror room and lots more.
The evolution room is my favorite, do put your comfortable shoes on as you will have to walk around to cover all the exhibits.

"Awesome place; must visit for tourists"

Apr 17, 2014
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.

"Good place for children."

Oct 2, 2013
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.
