    Amazing place for science and mathematics students. A must visit for students. A lot of educational and learning toys, books and gadgets are available for sale at reasonable prices. A very rare collection for kids as well as adults too. An educational extravaganza for all. Has something for everyone from kids as small as 2 yrs to adults. It would even interest the non scientifically inclined as well. Entry fee: rs 50, but additional shows like 3D etc are charged extra.

    A must visit for people interested in engines and mechanical engineering in general. Displays the chronology of various types engine development. Also working models have been constructed for various engines' working demonstration. Science section is fun to visit for children and teens. Overall a great place to bring your kids if you want to sow the seeds of science in them.

    Perfect for a day out with your kids. Tickets is for Rs 50. Kids below 6 are free. It gets crowded during school holidays. The place has 5 floors with a canteen at the top floor (which needs an upgrade). The place is good for adolescent kids who have just started to learn science. The place is well connected. There are toilets and wifi is through an app which does not works very well. Over all value for money.

    Great place to visit with kids. Lots of science games and exhibition. Can easily spend more than a couple of hours. So please keep sufficient time before closing. Being a government run place it closes down quite early and strictly on time.

    I had visited Visvesvaraya Industrial & Technological Museum with my family yesterday, and we found it is really a good place for all age ground, especially for children, to learn the science and its history. It took us around 4 hours to complete the visit. The place is clean and neat, and has good arrangement for car parking on basement and cafeteria on its terrace. Rest rooms are also reasonably clean. As it was a Sunday, It was little crowded.
