A chance to go down a coal mine

A good museum which gives an insight into industry and engineering. All the hands-on exhibits seemed to be working. The coal mine is the highlight.

The science park in Kolkata is an absolute waste of time and money. But this one does not disappoint. All the instruments are fully functional. The science shows are the main attraction here.But it is a bit costly with ticket prices around 100 INR per person. There is also a canteen facility inside serving food at a reasonable rate!
