Took the children out. They loved the aquariums and snake pits outside. Inside it was high school physics 101. They loved the hands on experiments. Hope this place keeps improving.

Yes, fee parking space available outside the museum and the charges are very nominal i.e. Rs.10/20 per hour. But you need at least 3/4 hours, if you want to see the museum properly.
