Birla Planetarium, Kolkata Reviews

  • Birla Planetarium Kolkata is a major tourist attraction in Kolkata. This planetarium in set up in 1962 is similar to London planetarium. Shows extending for about an hour are either in English, Hindi, or Bengali. Audience is enthralled by the spectacular show of constellations, zodiacal patterns of the sky, and space probes. It was recently revamped and now it's showing something different.

  • An absolute Wonder, Everyone Must Visit This Place Got to Learn a lot about Science, Exploration and Galaxies and Cosmos, Screening was an absolute delight
