B. M. Birla Planetarium, Hyderabad Reviews

  • Science museum in Hyderabad. Interesting place to visit, for those who are ready to enjoy science with fun. Science is explained well with practical examples. One can spend interactive couple of hours here without getting bored. One more thing! Don't forget to see the complete dinosaur's skeleton. It's amazing, but clicking pictures is not allowed.

  • We went to the place to attend a function in the auditorium and not to the museum per se. The site is reasonably clean and well maintained. Parking is big enough to accommodate many cars. The auditorium is big enough for an event of 500 people. Overall good experience. Only con is the way to reach the place, which is to narrow.

  • One of the worst places I've been in Hyderabad. Fake Equipment, fake things, no Ac. No ventilation. No fan. No photography allowed. Wastage of time and wastage of money. Not suitable for any one. Please please please do not visit. Visit at your own risk. Rating - 0/10.

  • Good to watch along with school going kids. Look for show timings and plan for planitorium and 3D show. If you opt for museum and science centre you can save money on ticketing. Children will enjoy the museum and love to do science experiments. Minimum 4 hours required to watch museum and planitorium. Weekends will be over crowded but you will enjoy watching with crowd.

  • It's a cool place with lot of scientific facts. The information about the missiles is awesome. But the show stopper is the dinosaurium. The way its reconstructed is amazing.
