"Wonderful world"

2 days ago
Science City, Kolkata is the largest science centre in the Indian subcontinent under National Council of Science Museums, Ministry of Culture, Government of India, is at the crossing of Eastern Metropolitan Bypass and J B S Haldane avenue, Kolkata.

I visited this place few years ago. I enjoyed a lot in this science city. This place has a entry fee. This place timings are 9:00 am to 9:00 pm. We can spend a day to enjoy in the science city. Some activity entry is a paid one.

"Science City Kolkata. Place for all."

3 months ago
Friends the place is open from 10am till 8 PM. Hence you get ample time to enjoy with your family or friends. It is advisable to enter the place by cable car. Composite ticket can be obtained at the ticket counter @ Rs30(+service tax) for cable car and Rs 40 entry fee. Other costs are given on my photos. You should enjoy science fiction shows, gravity shows, and other attractions. Elderly people will get tired as there will be loads of walking around. Good options available for foodies. Enjoy evening sound & light show just in front of dinosaur museum. Lots of rides available for children's also including maze park. Camera charges are applicable.

"Excellent place"

Jun 7, 2016
Its one of the excellent place for letting the kids understand the science things in interesting fashion.

Whatever the things they read in books are shown here with great looks. Very good place for a family outing. Since location is a bit far. You should plan the visit accordingly. The good part is that conveyance is never a problem here.

"A must visit"

Apr 14, 2016
This place is really another world. My friends and I went there and felt that we are in another world, some time we feel that we are in space and some time we felt that we are in ancient world. This place is worth exploring. And children also love this place too much.

"Decaying without proper maintenance"

Apr 14, 2016
There was a time when science city used to be a craze among all age groups. Happened to visit the place recently after may be a gap of 10 long years. The place is in urgent need of renovation, upgradation and maintenance. The fun experiments with whom one can learn with enjoying the phenomenon. 90% of them aren't working. The time machine is enjoyable yet the video quality is so poor that one doesn't get the exciting feel. A new HD video is needed for simulation. Same is the case for 3D shows. Please pay attention otherwise once an amusing place has already started decaying. And last but not the least, the food stalls available are sub par and charge high tariffs, need professional food joints inside, but given the sorry state of the place, I presume no vendor of repute will be enthusiastic about it.

Truly an amazing place I have ever seen. I loved the scientific theories used here. Best place for children and for every age group people. The best thing about this place is that you will never know how the time is passing by.

"Excellent place to visit with many things to do"

Jan 19, 2016
I visited Science City when I came to Kolkata with my friends. We came to Science City by taking Ola cab from Howrah station. We saw Dinosaurs structure, Science film, Mirror maze. We also played many games by which we understood many science related topics like centripetal and centrifugal force. We ate chicken pasta and momo from the food stalls. It was really a paisa vasool visit. So, I recommend others to must visit Science City when they come to Kolkata.
