The Science City in Kolkata is one of the most outstanding Science Museum in the country. This place is indeed a tribute Kolkata's contribution to the world of Science. You will come across real life scientific experiences like Energy Ball, Tornado, Quick Sand, Ocean Waves and much more.
The whole of the concept is divided into two parts- the science center and the cultural center. The latter is not of much for the visitors as it has more to do with meetings and cultural programs. But the former attracts the attention of every single soul and it has everything one can dream of- The space odyssey (with 3-D theater), butterfly corner, monster-sized robotic insects, marine life, dinosaurs evolution and extinction, mirror miracles, time machine etc.
One feels amazed at the way they have made the universe shrunk into a science center.
