Science City Kolkata – An Abode of Fun and Knowledge

The trip to the Chintamoni Kar Bird Sanctuary was a very warming one. It was lovely to see all the beautiful birds and other colourful species of butterflies. When we were done with our trip to the sanctuary we headed to our next location which was Science City of Kolkata.

The Science City, located in the eastern side of the city was established in the year 1997. It was the made by the efforts of National Council of Science Museums. The place not only serves as a museum or an amusement park but it is an abode of knowledge about Science and technology. It was evident from the huge crowd that people from all the age groups enjoy coming here.

We went to all these sections one by one. It was a wonderful experience and a lot of knowledge could be availed in each of them. The star attraction for us inside the Science City was the Space Theatre. The theatre is actually a circular hall having a dome shaped ceiling. The theatre plays documentaries on our galaxies, Earth, stars and constellations. There is also an auditorium inside the complex having state of the art technology for audio video purpose and a seating capacity of 2300 people.


There are 3 hang around also present inside the Science City named as Durga Mandap, Mukta Mancha, and Bengal gallery. We had a light meal along with coffee at the food plaza of the Science City. A section is devoted to artificial dinosaurs which are loved by the children.
