Rating: 4 stars
We took entire class from our school for Science museum tour. It was quite educative. Our students were various concepts of Physics and other subjects through interactive modes. The interactive science centre is the best part I feel. Everyone enjoyed even while learning. Birla Science Museum timings are from 10.30 am to 8 pm so you can plan the tour within the school hours.

This is different from Birla Planetarium and has more sections to see. Some sections display various kinds of excavations as well. As the timings for Birla Science museum is from 10.30 am to 8 pm, it is better to go there in morning and see everything. By evening you can go to Birla Planetarium as there the English show starts in evening.

I went with my family with so much expectations but this place is utter disaster! Most of the place at Birla Science Museum is badly maintained. It might be a good place earlier but not it looks old and broken. Most of the equipment there wasn’t even working properly! Really pathetic. Nothing special to see at dinosaurium too.

We didn’t know much about Birla Science museum. We used to think its same as Birla Planetarium. After going there we go to know about various divisions. We went on weekday but we didn’t have much time but we could see two of them. The interactive center is best..they show you in interactive way about optical illusion and many other things. We will be going again to see all the sections.

Plan your visit properly before going. Birla Science Museum timings are different from planetarium. We went on Thursday and it was closed. It seems it is closed on last Thursday every month and open only in evening on first and last Friday! I had taken my kids thinking they will have good time but had to come without seeing anything. Nevertheless we went to necklace road and eat street and had good time there!

This place is equipped with scientific equipment. I took my kids but I myself enjoyed a lot at Birla Science Museum Hyderabad. Even adults can learn a lot here at Birla Science museum. It has exhibits of different excavations which belong to apparently 2nd century AD. Even fossils of dinosaurs and there is also a gallery. There are a lot of interesting things to see.
