If you are visiting Kolkata with kids, a visit to Science City is a must.It is the largest Science Center in the Indian Subcontinent under the National Council of Science Museums.It is a unique effort to bring everyone to love the laws of Science.Munch and Perk had a great time there too.They thoroughly loved the place and so did we.There is something there for everyone..
The Evolution Park
It is a theme park covering 7 large walk through dioramas with robotic prehistoric animals and plants.It shows the history of evolution of life.
The entrance to the evolution park
The Dynamotion Hall
Here there are various exhibits and props for visitors to experience and use and understand the underlying principles of Science.It is actually learning with fun. The Space Odyssey
It comprises a Space Theatre which is like a planetarium and we enjoyed the screening of the film Greece. This place also has a 3D vision theatre, a Mirror magic zone and a Time Machine which provides a virtual experience of a space flight.The kids specially had a gala time with the magic mirrors.

It was an amazing place to be in and I would recommend it to all those who visit Kolkata with your little ones…this is a must visit .It is a fun day out for the entire family.
With the kids exams being over and the schools due to open only in the first week of April, we decided to take a short break and come back before the declaration of the results.We decided to make a short trip to the City of Joy…. yes to Kolkata.
I’ve been to Kolkata many times when I was a kid and it has been one of my least favourite metro. Coming from a small town ,I hated the crows…be it on the roads,the trains,the shops,the restaurants…you name it and there were hordes and hordes of people everywhere .Secondly the weather in summers used to be really humid and bad.(I usually went there with my parents during the summer hols).Delhi and Mumbai are also crowded cities but somehow I preferred them to Kolkata.
But this time when I decided to show my kids The City Of Joy..the heart of Bengal and what our culture is all about,this trip to Kolkata had a different meaning altogether.I saw the city with a different perspective this time.My husband and kids were literally going there for the first time and I had so much to tell them and brag about things I knew.They hung on every word I said.They went according to the itinerary I had prepared for them.They ate at places I recommended ,they bought music I chose and books I recommended.
I would take you through my five days in Kolkata in the subsequent posts.
Its been a terribly busy month. …is an understatement.Munch and Perk had their final exams,year end work in school,parties,parties and more parties,setting up home and finally throwing a house warming party too.
I missed the blog and all of you too.There is so much to share but I’ll start with a peep into my living room.
These new acquisitions have added charm to the living room.
The D-shaped table and the carved mirror are a valued possession.
I got these floating shelves made by the carpenter.
The living room is shaping up…and I am taking my time to do it up….what do you think?
