"Beautiful and must visit place with good collection" new review

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
It is big museum in Bangalore. Here entry fee is about Rs 20/- per person. This museum is about 4 km from Majestic Bus Stop and 6 km from Kalasipalyam Bus Stop. Here we can see various types of collections of articles and monuments. Scientific apparatus can be seen such as telescopes and mic-ropes and electronic designed micrometer. Etc. I advice children who is interested in science should and must see this gallery as soon as possible.
