“Worth Visiting for Increasing Inquisitiveness about science and its development”

National Science Centre
Ranked #76 of 457 things to do in New Delhi
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 June 2018

The Centre is worth visiting for increasing inquisitiveness about science and its development among children as well as adults. But it requires maintenance immediately. Though there are several activities in which a person gets engaged and learns a lot. The children really enjoys 3D movie and science with fun. It takes time to observe all galleries so one shall visit with plenty of time with oneself to spend there. At around 3 pm, it became crowded. It may be because of summer vacations of the students.

Its a great place for all to learn so much about science, technology and their importance in our lives. The place is huge and would take a whole day to cover properly. There are various galleries like Science and Technology Heritage, Human Biology, Fun Science, Information Revolution, Emerging Technologies, Water etc.
The only problem I found was maintenance. Most of the self activity counters were not working and that just ruined all the fun for us. Also, avoid visiting this place in summers as it would be very hot and suffocating inside.There is a small shop and cafeteria as well at the exit.

Frankly this was my first time ever visit to a place where a kid can get to know the things about various science facts and is really a place which the school going children should visit. In fact an eye-opener for adults also in terms of various scientific facts.

The only problem I found was maintenance some self activity counters are not working, pre-historic sections with the dianosaurs is good but seems that they have'nt been cleaned for a long time.

Secondly, this type of concept should not only be there in the capital but the ministry should also establish such concepts in the tier 2 cities of the country.

Overall it is a must watch place for all the school going children.

Visited national science center an year ago. This place has a parking area and nearest metro station is barakhamba and mandi house.

Usually crowded during weekends, better plan your visit accordingly.

This place potrays everything a child should know about science. They too have a room for 4d-5d show which is chargeable.

There is a small Jurassic park as well which is worth watching...

One can spend whole day at national science center without any regret.

There is a small cafeteria as well, which serves snacks to kill your hunger.

A best place to immerse into science and technology. Best place for kids and who want to know the science and technological developments. You can have fun with physics experiments. There is a room full of printers, old movie cameras and evolution of computers and a communication through Morse code setup, Do try it. Trust me you'll truly enjoy visiting the place you gain knowledge at the same time you'll have fun.
