  • One of the best places in Bangalore for kids to learn and to have fun too. Best sky shows in South India. Daily 2 shows. Tickets are given 2 hrs before. There a well thought out play are for kids giving them exposure to everyday science. JNP was recently awarded the Karnataka state government award. They also conduct guided sessions for HS and college kids on pure science topics. Talks by scientists are also held and are very interested.

  • A very good place for space enthusiasts and kids as well. Educational kits are also provided here. The surrounding is green and serene. The ticket charges are minimal. The management are very friendly. There's also a mini canteen and Milk Parlour in the area. Many lectures as well as summer and winter schools and many other activities keep happening from time to time. Overall a great place to visit.

  • Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium in Bangalore is a popular attraction site in the city, administered by the Bangalore Association for Science Education (BASE). The entire establishment is meant for the science enthusiasts and is devoted towards providing a detailed knowledge about earth and space and various scientific aspects of it in a fun and exciting way. From how stars form to how planets evolve, from the origin of life to human's space expeditions, from how gravity works to how eclipses happen - the planetarium tells it all. The Sky Theatre is its main attraction, but there are other interesting set ups as well which is fun to experience as well as gives an overall idea about a number of scientific phenomena. People from around the city visit this place as well as tourists who are in Bangalore for some days. Mainly it facilitates the educational institutes which can bring their students here for an academic excursion with prior booking. The children get to learn things outside the classrooms and also enjoy a day out with friends. The place is a fascinating hub of knowledge but not in a preachy, textbook manner; but rather in a much more intriguing and practical way which explains the concepts much better than simple words on a piece of paper.
