This is a wonderful , full of knowledge place which will create interest and curiosity in young brains to know more and more about Space Exploration. A must visit by every parent with their children. History of ISRO is shown here with graphics and models of solar system , satellites, launch vehicles. A quiz on Science facts is also there which one can play on machines. A short movie in 3D is also usually shown to visitors. Moreover there is a souvenir shop to purchase memento as a token of memory of this visit. In short, experiencing this place is a journey with full fun and enthusiasm.
