    Discovery of Mahatma in the true spirit and hence experiencing his presence by visiting the historical place having many belongings and books and the environment itself. As a museum it was properly maintained and of course it is a must visit of every Indian.

    Earlier known as "Prince of Wales Museum", building itself is a heritage building.
    Good and unique artefacts on display and very informative particularly the Natural History section.
    A proper visit can consume 2-3 hours and the museum closes at 5.00 PM, so folks can plan accordingly.

    Recommended for all age groups.

    People are allowed to click photos for which they have to buy an additional ticket and they will give you a wrist band to display.

    Had been with kids, kids below 5 years are not requiring a ticket for the show. Also note that the tickets are booked in advance. The show is informative but small kids won't understand much. The models of satellites rockets or planets on display can be seen before you enter the dome theater.

    Science Center is very useful having Science Park, Science Centre, Science Odyssey,Science Park Auditorium, Library, Exhibitions,Picnic areas etc being utilised by many especially children being arranged by Schools and Colleges as part of study programmes. Shows were availble. The employees needed to be more helpful and diligent.

In the other spot, there are oil lamps and jewellery which were used to adorn domestic animals in ancient period.There is a huge collection of cooking vessel and lanterns placed at the front yard. The left gallery features a collection of ancient board games such as Ludo, and decorative storage boxes made of brass, copper, iron and wood.
