Hope you are all good and having fun reading the blog.
This time I visited the Museum in our beautiful city, Bangalore. The museum is named “The Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum”. Its located on the Kasturba Road, a few meters away from MG Road. Its very easy to locate.
I have visited this place before. All what I remembered was the model of train and plane in front of the museum. Also I always remembered the TV and camera which fascinated me a lot. It was back then when we had never come across the webcams and skypes. So seeing ourselves on the TV was a big thing (atleast for me).
Well, this place is too good according to me. Instead wasting your time in the malls playing those virtual games and emptying your wallets, I strongly recommend visiting this Museum. Here you will have fun, entertainment and more importantly “Knowledge” is what you again.
Establishment: The museum was instituted as part of the centenary celebrations of the engineer-statesman Sir M. Vishvesvaraya (1861-1962). It was handed over to the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in 1962. In 1978 when the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) was formed, Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum became its southern head quarters. The Council has a chain of 28 centres spread all over India. The objective of the Council is to popularize science through interactive exhibits.
Galleries: Vishveshwaray Museum is not a ‘museum’ in its classical sense, because it has interactive exhibits unlike stationary models of a museum. It is more of a “Science Centre”. Each floor of this museum is dedicated to a scientific discipline.
You can visit various galleries listed below:
- Engine Hall
- Electro Technic Gallery
- Fun Science Gallery
- Space Gallery
I had lots of fun visiting this. A serious visitor should be prepared to spend at least 3 hours in the Museum to have a glimpse of this treasure house of knowledge in the heart of Bangalore.
Timings: 10am to 6pm (Open all days)
Entry Fees: ₹30/ person
Here are few pictures for you and hope this makes you tie up your shoes and visit this place.
I am not adding captions to the pictures, as I want you all to explore by visiting the museum.
Thanks for reading, keep visiting.
Lots of Love,
