"Scientific, entertaining things are there to learn about"

Pritam, Krishnanagar

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"

Priyam, Chennai

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"

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
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.

One of the newest and most popular tourists’ attractions of Kolkata is Science City. There are two ways to enter this science and amusement park. One can either walk straight into it or can fly in through a rope way, which gives views of not only the park but also a large section of the city. The main attractions of Science City are Space Theatre, Time Machine, 3D shows, Dynamotion, Natural Science Park, Dinosaurs Complex and Evolution Theme Park.

Maintained by the National Council of Science Museums, Science City is known to be the largest of its kind in the south Asian sub-continent. The Space Theatre also known as Space Odyssey is the first Large Format Film Theatre of India.

Dynamotion Hall imparts knowledge about light, speed and electricity through simple experiments. The Convention Centre at the science park houses a seminar hall building, a large mini theatre and an open air ground for hosting exhibitions and other shows.
