Many people like to visit Diamond cutting and polishing factories in Surat. When I asked to same, local recommend me to visit Science Center And Science Museum instead. Because he said, most of the diamond factory use the latest technology and all things are done by computers and machines. So we hardly understand or get to see anything. In Surat science center, we have visited Diamond gallery on 3rd floor where we have seen a different kind of diamonds, including how they cut, polished, including, history, old machines, and everything explained in the very detailed way.
Other than that, there is a Science Centre + 3D Show+ Planetarium + Museum. Total ticket cost for all is Rs 120 for adult and Rs 80 for kids. There is also a children's play zone. Entry is free for small kids. There was a fixed timing for the 3D show, which was at 10:30 am and Planetarium show at 11:30 am.
Science Centre opens around 9:30 am and to cover all of the above need around 4 hours. So plan accordingly. Do not forget: If you found this review helpful, please click THANK below.

Top class planetarium - easily one of the best in India. Has 3D and 4D shows - totally out of the world. We had a show regarding Egypt and felt we were transported there physically...light and sound were awesome...Children would also learn about the stars and night sky... Museum is extremely well maintained with lot of caring. It is well lit and displayed....Has rare paintings and chinese vases among many exhibits....Science section is very interesting for children and adults...Has a cute shop in ground floor selling local ethnic items

The science centre, planetarium, diamond museum and history museum is a one campus now created very recently and one can spend nice time here. The science centre is interesting if you have school children with you who do can enjoy a bit of science. There is a nice museum of diamonds where one gets to see the entire history of diamonds and the way it is produced. It is very insightful and especially if you are in Surat you should know about diamonds. The Patel museum is also very good with all the collection and also good information on Surat itself. The planetarium is similar to any which you would come across so can be skipped. You get package ticket which is good so that you can spend time as you want. Well maintained and worth a look in.

The science center in Surat is a nice place if you have about 3 hours of time. The "Fun Science" section is awesome and explains practically a few basic principles in Science. Also there is a Diamond section, but I personally didnt find it much attractive. Also there is a planetarium show, which I could not attend due to time constraints.
