The National Science Centre is definitely a must see for science enthusiasts, especially those who are young. A good place to refresh your basics, particularly in Physics. Has a recently built section on DNA Science and also a section on Dinosaurs. A section on ancient Indian Science and Technology, including Vedic Mathematics and Ayurveda. The 'Energy Ball' display near the entrance is interesting and perhaps the most captivating of all.
