  • This is a good place to hangout once with the young kids.. they find it amusing with the solar system knowledge... Seating is very comfortable... It has air conditioning... Place has good parking facilities.. it has good scientific theme park... Kids will love it... Shows are available in multiple languages (English and Kannada ).. open in the weekends..
  • We went at 4:30 pm English show and there was only about 20 people so good time to avoid crowds. Excellent and entertaining show "STARS", I was impressed! Don't miss the "weighing station" inside the building, which shows your weight on all the different planets. The science park outside had many educational and fun exhibits, however several of them were not working properly due to rust or damage. Maintenance is needed.
