An excellent place for learners

If you don't visit this place in Patna, you are missing a big deal. Although it's not as strong and famous as many other science centres in India, yet it has its own dignity. From the remains of rock ages to the expected future presentations, everything here is pretty much enticing particularly for learning kids.
