During my recent visit to Banglore, I visited Visvesvarya Industrial & Technology Museum and am super impressive with this place. I strongly recommend this to all kids. So if you are travelling to Bengaluru or state in the city, make sure you take your kid to this place once. Thereafter kids would drag you there once in 3 months at least :) . This posts shares more about the place and why I am so impressed.
This place is adjacent to Art Museum and very close to Cubbon Park & Karnataka Aquarium. The place is free for kids and adults need to buy 40 Rs ticket which is very nominal in my opinion. During the weekends this place is pretty crowded, but since whole museum is spread over 5 floors of this building, there is enough space for everyone to look through each installation to learn and enjoy.
There is huge space inside this building which is dedicated to museum. And you can see a huge mig fighter plane in the front yard.
On ground floor, there are various mechanical demonstrations of some common things we use in our lives.
There are some very interesting setups. The zig-zag structure is very popular. Some balls keep moving on them and change their paths as per guided bends. One has to see it to really appreciate the whole setup.
I would leave you with these visuals and feel the energy of this place. I don't have right words to explain it well. Please note that most of them are working models and you can play with them.
Even this zip opens and closes, which can be controlled by the wheel in the bottom part of photograph.
