Loved it. It was tremendous experience with lots of knowledge oriented tour all thru the place. Topic of discussion and filming will be changed everyday and it was great. Nice place for children and adults too. Children would surly love the place if things are properly explained to them. Thank you.
I had great expectation from this place. Unfortunately it has not improved over the years. Extremely rude security staff. Dated gear and no modern tech on display. The planetarium mostly shows still pictures, such a waste of setup. No one is putting in effort to keep this place up to pace. What was set earlier is what is running till now. A good facility being wasted.
