The museum is so beautiful and informative. It is so mesmerizing and everything about science and life. I and my friends had been here in 2014 and we all pretty much liked it and there is also art museum next to it. It is very unique and simple that any common man can understand the concept of it. They also sell books and stuffs related to science. It would me more fun for kids to see.
It has nine exhibitions halls: Engine Hall, How Things Work, Fun Science Hall, Electro Technic hall, Space Gallery, Biotechnological Revolution Hall, BEL Hall of electronics, Science for Children, and a Dinosaur Enclave.
The ticket price is Rs 50 above age of 5 years. Once you get in, there are shows (which you have to pay for separate) and the timings are listed.

Advice for Visvesvaraya Museum Visitors
It’s a wonderful place to visit, especially for kids who is interested in science and learning. It would take around 3 hours to explore all the floors. It’s better to read before trying out devices kept for display. This will help to get better understanding. Only problem is the food service available in top floor, it is not up to the level for eating food and there was no clean washing area as well.
