Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre Museum, Trivandrum Reviews

  • Good ambience and well staffed but canteen food is terrible. But prices are extremely low. You can get lunch at 7.5 rupees. Service is instant, and you can pay once at the end of the month for all the lunches together. Coffee is decent. The normal Scientist hostel food is good but hard to book for yourself. The not-widely-known continental lunch option in scientist hostel is really excellent. Includes dishes such as Parmesan stuffed chicken, mashed beef sandwiches, fish fingers, marinated chicken steak and the best herbed mashed potatoes ever. However, good luck trying to eat any of these hidden delicacies. You literally need a visitor from a foreign country to book it for him and shamelessly ask to sample all his dishes. Come to think of it, good luck eating anything from here because you need to be an employee to enter.

  • Nice place... best place for college students to visit.... Best for Industrial visit..... It has planetarium and Rocket Launch Pad.... Every 2 Wednesday there is a rocket launch....

  • Its one of its kind .. but no electronic device is allowed inside the campus. You need to get entry pass either Online or from PTO office. NO PICS AVAILABLE
