This Birla Planetarium in Hyderabad is like any other planetarium. Here the interesting thing is that they have different shows every year which is good as they present shows on recent developments in science.Although the quality should be much better, it is worth going once at least. Birla Planetarium is offers definitely something different from other hangout in the city.

It not only educates but also entertains its visitors in different ways. It has international standards of presentation, which has been rated among the best and highly visited planetarium of the world. It is a place for everyone and can be afforded by everyone too as the Birla Planetarium entry fee is also minimal. What I liked the most in... More

The Sky theatre show was at 4 pm in english. (They run shows in English, Hindi, and Telugu) please check their website for revisions if any. The area is on a hillock and felt cool. We clubbed the same along with Birla Temple. The show inside the sky theater was very good. The projector is the older one as compared... More

We went on one of the weekdays and the place was full of school kids. The first show at 11:30 was already booked by schools, but luckily for us some kids did not turn up and we got the seats at the last min. The show inside the sky theater was very good. It would have been better without school... More

The pros: Museum and planetrium in the same complex. Good planning ensures you see the 2 places in half a day. One can add the Birla temple to the list of places to be covered in half a day The cons: Bad approach, narrow roads that are further congested with parked vehicles. No card/paytm accepted....Ahem..is this not accounted for money... More
