Overall Rating:4.3

"Great place for kids and grown ups alike. If your kid is interested in Science do take them here for a refreshing experience. The shows are in English, Hindi and Assamese, the duration of each show is not more than 30 minutes. The prices of tickets are low as well! This place is an attraction for astronomers and general public when there is a Solar or Lunar eclipse, do visit it during those time and enjoy even more."
