It not only educates but also entertains its visitors in different ways. Birla Planetarium in Hyderabad presents international standards of presentation, which has been rated among the best and highly visited planetariums of the world. Its cosmic presentation can be easily considered at par with those in Europe, Japan and the US. It is a place for everyone and can be afforded by everyone too as the Birla Planetarium entry fee is also minimal. However, kids below the age of 4 years are not allowed for the sky show.

I went to watch the hindi show as i felt i would understand the galaxies and stars better in my native language, but i was proved wrong during the show. The language used is pure hindi where they used terms like "dhumketu" for comets and similarly some other words for asteroids and describe their interactions again in very uncommon hindi terms . It was very pure hindi which we dont use in our day to day language and thus made it little difficult for me to understand. I would prefer the english show going forward. Otherwise, every thing was just great about this place and the show.
(No offence to others who may find this more easier to understand, this is purely my experience)

The show starts only if there are 15 people. So it is advisable to first visit the science museum. In case the no of people wanting to see the show is 15, the security guards in the museum will tell you. You can they buy the ticket, watch the show and return to the science museum to complete your visit. This way you will optimize your time.

The show changes. When we were there they were showing a film on Mars. One of the first planetariums in India it gives you a great space travel feel. After the show you move on to a different room where you see a 3D film on underwater corals.

Not much of space travel fan, we enjoyed the underwater 3D show more.

We had visited Birla Planetarium during our sightseeing in Hyderabad. Tickets are priced at 100 rupees per person and there are shows in English and local languages at different times of the day. From the parking lot one has to walk up an inclined path to reach the Planetarium building at the top. We enjoyed the beautiful architecture of the building and the show about planets.

This place has science center and planetarium. The shows of planetarium are rarely done due to few visitors. The science center has interesting working models, old camera which is as large as truck. Interesting dynosaurus park, doll museum and precious exhibits. The various models of isro satellites are also on display

The Planetarium cum Museum is very huge.. lots of exhibits are there related to various subjects.. However, the planetarium show can very well be avoided. The charges for the show is exorbitant and its not exactly a sky show. I would rather call it a slide show, for which don't need a dome shaped planetarium but a normal white scree projector is enough. This is not how a planetarium show should be, given the fact that it is known to be one among the best planetariums in the country.

The exhibits are all in working condition and very informative..
