What, When & Where: A Guide To Spending A Day At The Goa Science Centre
What Is It?
Located across the beachfront just near Miramar Circle, at this place one can operate, handle or manipulate scientific objects and see their effects first-hand. It also has an outdoor science park spread over some four acres, showing pre-historic animals as well as games to play whilst exploring science. Then there is the planetarium and a mirror room that can be great fun for the kids and adults.
Next, there is a unique 3D theatre facility, which shows some exciting documentary films on different topics. The best we thought was the oceanography section as it is unique and explained concepts like tectonic waves, tides, currents and a lot more on oceans really well.
They are open every day from 10am till 6pm except on Holi and Diwali. They have multiple daily planetarium and 3D shows.
Make a day of it and even visit the customs museum in Panjim.
