B M Birla Science Museum

The B M Birla Science Museum is the second phase of the Centre and was inaugurated by Shri M. Chenna Reddy, the then Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh on March 15, 1990. It has a unique facility which includes an Interactive Science Centre, Archaeology and Dolls Museum, Nobel Gallery, Antarctica Diorama, Dwaraka Diorama, Remote Sensing Gallery, Simulated Experiments, Space Museum and Dinosaurium (paleontology & fossils section).

It elaborately showcases the country’s achievements in science, in collaboration with Government of India departments like the Department of Ocean Development, Indian Space Research Organization, Geological Survey of India, Ministry of Science & Technology and many others.

Upcoming galleries are now being developed in collaboration with European Southern Observatory, NASA and several other international organizations.

Upcoming galleries are now being developed in collaboration with the European Southern Observatory, NASA and several other international organisations.

The science museum has broad exhibits ranging from palaeontology and oceanic excavations to simulated hands-on experiments, remote sensing and a plethora of other scientific methods and principles. Each is explained in various sections of the museum for easy understanding.

The Interactive Science Centre exhibits in-house manufactured and developed science exhibits. They are a must for any community to encourage the development of a competent scientific citizenry so essential for the betterment of the developing world.

Science education and scientific awareness are often lacking in developing countries. Science education has been ineffective as evidenced by the absence of technical innovations and breakthroughs and by dismally low numbers of scientific papers and citations. The general level of scientific awareness is also poor.

The exhibits at the Interactive Science Centre demystify science and instill curiosity and enthusiasm in visitors about the wonders and power of science and technology.

The primary goal of producing interactive exhibits is to give visitors a hands-on experience of science and make them ‘see’ how a phenomenon works. The exhibits expose fundamental concepts of science that can be used as building blocks for understanding more complex phenomena.
