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.

Science City Kolkata. Place for all.

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

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.

Decaying without proper maintenance

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 10long 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 arent working. The time machine is enjoyable yet the video quality is so poor that ine doesnt 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.
