  • A must visit place for science lovers and knowledge seekers especially students. Everyone from kids to old ones enjoy here with learning by doing projects. Interactive, working science projects and machines. Get a chance to learn different aspects of science in a very interactive and funny way. You get to see different engines and machines that form the base for modern day technology, an interactive flight simulation model of Wright Brothers, fundamental principles of electricity, fluid mechanics, sound and optics science, pulley system, ball contraption and much more interesting stuff. The museum can be made more informative though, and there is always room for improvements - important part is maintenance, keeping models in working conditions as at present many are not.. Very interesting. So good for science students to understand the concepts of physics.
  • A must visit place in Bangalore...This is something so different and good... An international level museum .... Everyone from kids to old ones enjoy here with learning by doing projects... Interactive , working science projects and machines... Very interesting... So good for science students to understand the concepts of physics... It's a jewel in cap of Bangalore and yet so not very known place...It deserves it's due popularity.. do visit this place once and don't miss on shows that happen there during fixed timings mentioned on sideboards....
  • Superb place to hang out with your inner kid who is or was into science or are getting introduced to science. I can say it's well maintained even if it has a long history. Maintained by the govt, and very nominal entry fee, you'll not regret going there even after you'd got school long time back. Brings back all the school memories, the teachers who struggled to teach us these concepts that were so elementary but we still didn't understand the head and tail of it. You'd need a full day to get to know the whole museum. Go early, take your time, enjoy. Best science museum I've visited. I strongly suggest this to any one who fancies about physics or is studying physics. There is some biology/gene related exhibition as well. I did not have enough time to visit those exhibits . I could have happily spent one full day here.
  • This is a very nice museum for science enthusiasts. There are several units catering to Electromagnetism, Mechanics, basic physics, electronics, bio-technology etc. The exhibits are highly informative and interactive. There are buttons placed near to each exhibit to activate it.  I would say it's a must see visit for any science/technology enthusiast. high-school to engineering students will find it useful. Entry fee is Rs.50 per head. Thereafter some 3D shows at certain timings.
  • An excellent science museum. There's so much to watch. I think this is the best place to take kids if you want them to actively take an interest in science. And if you're already fascinated by science, this will be heaven for you. Some exhibits were under maintenance, but there's enough and more to observe. This place can get really noisy and crowded because the majority of the visitors tend to be school-going kids. There are entire wings dedicated to the display of products by two major Indian organizations - ISRO and BEL. The entry ticket costs 50 per head for an adult. There's a cafeteria at the rooftop but the food isn't great. Gazing down from the rooftop gave me a sense of serenity. The view is not astounding, but it's good. If you stop to watch and observe every exhibit closely, you might end up spending an entire day here.
