Amazing Science and technology museum. All technological and scientific exhibits are mind blowing. Gaming and 3D experience zone area available for young children to play. Many interesting exhibits to visit. My son visited it first in a school trip and museum hunt competition from Army Public School. Great infrastructure and friendly people. Best place to go in holidays or weekends.Amazing experience.
The place is a treat for kids and those interested in science. There are very good models and cutaways of various types. It has a very good play area for small kids, for which there is no separate access charge. A limited amount of parking is available for both cars and two-wheelers at reasonable rates (30 rupees per car irrespective of the duration). One would typically need four to five hours to explore the place well.
