We were visiting after decades and were sorry to find that the displays in the “free” entry area, were not maintained properly, many of them dysfunctional or missing! Most of the popular and experiential attractions were “paid” entries, with high rates of tickets.

Of course, the outdoors with the maze and other exhibits were nice. The area with rockets, dedicated to Dr. Kalam was the best.

The access and pathways were not conducive to use a stroller for a child, who had to be carried by the parents.

If you are planning to visit this place, Do go. For all the visitors who are coming from near and far. If you are looking for an open space with lots of greenery, this is the place. Most of the exhibitions are free. There are few which needs tickets. But they are not expensive, so anybody can afford them. If you want to teach your kids about the prehistoric era. You need to visit that particular exhibition. Which shook is the dinosaurs and ice age. For someone who's looking for having food inside, you can bring your own food or if you don't want to carry it. There's so many stalls where you can find some nice. Not the delicious one but they are good enough to have. Transport is rightly available, so anybody wants to travel from and to can easily catch a bus or cab. Overall, it has been a good experience for us. I hope this review helps the next person who's reading and wants to travel to this particular place

Science City Kolkata is the largest science centre in Asia.It is managed by National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), Ministry of Culture, Government of India. It is located at the crossing of Eastern Metropolitan Bypass and J. B. S. Haldane Avenue (Parama Island) in East Topsia. Saroj Ghose, the first director general of NCSM, is credited with having conceptualised this centre in 1997.[5] This centre was inaugurated by two parts: the ‘Convention Centre Complex’ was unveiled on 21 December 1996 by Paul Jozef Crutzen in presence of the then chief minister Jyoti Basu and the whole centre was opened by the then prime minister Inder Kumar Gujral on 1 July 1997.

The Science City, one of its kind in India, inaugurated on 1st July,1997 has been developed as a major attraction for the residents’ of Kolkata as well as for the national and international visitors to the metropolis. Developed by the National Council of Science Museums, it is one of the largest and finest in the world, presenting science and technology in a stimulating and engaging environment that is truly educational and enjoyable for the people of all ages. It has, over the years, become a place for memorable experience and enjoyment for both the young and the old.

A great time to spend with friends and family. Science City is the best place to discover amazing facts of Science. It is a place to know some Mistry of Science. I must recommend this place to those who are curious. And one more thing this is a fabulous place to bring your kids and spend a quality time with your family and friends and for having fun with them. No need to buy all tickets at the entrance as there are counters for all exhibitions inside too. There's a musical fountain and a lot of food and drink options. Car parking is available for 60 rupees.

Has a relatively good selection of Science-related artefacts and information and there are some good views across Kolkata from the ropeway. My only problems with Science City (which is why I haven't given it four or five stars) is that some parts could be better maintained and cleaned (especially the eating areas), and that in some attractions, there is too much emphasis in giving the audio-based information in Hindi (without any subtitles or audio in either English or Bengali) which means that it is not particularly ideal or inclusive for foreign tourists (I am one of them, as while I can understand bits of Hindi, I can't speak the language) who are visiting the area or even some locals who want to hear the information in Bengali. Apart from these issues, it was a relatively good experience overall.

Good place to visit for kids, but too much waiting for most shows. More than half the time we were standing in queues. They must allow online booking of tickets for individual events.
