The Birla Science Museum – Enriching Minds
After filling our tummies with the yummy Hydeabadi delicacies, we moved towards our next destination, that was -The Birla Science Museum
The Birla Science Museum is one of the most esteemed organizations that is devoted for propagation and promotion of science to the common people. It is the second phase of the renowned B.M. Birla Science Center and it was created so that in congregation with the Birla Planetarium and the Birla Dinosaurium, it could edify the masses about the basics of science in a way that is more interesting, interactive and exciting rather than the elaborated textual knowledge.
The Birla Science Museum is the only museum of Hyderabad that is exclusively dedicated to science and is educating people since its opening in the year 1990.
We reached the place shortly. Unlike many other museums that are sparsely approached by public as they are considered geek, this museum was welcoming a decent number of people who were keen to know about science and what the museum has to offer. The museum was very well maintained and harbored wonderful displays that seemed to be interesting than nerdy, proving that science is not limited to just textbooks.
Museum was sectioned into many divisions, each with some interesting and different exhibits. We had to split into two groups as both kids wanted to go to different sections (which was suitable to their age, of course). Soon, we joined to visit an appealing section of the science centre that was dedicated to optical illusions. It was very entertaining and fascinating section that amused everyone.
Next we moved to the electronic section, where, a harp was gaining everyone’s attention as whenever any visitor passed his hand over it, it played a note. In other sections, there were holograms, a maze of dolls and sculptures constructed of glass and crystal. Porcelain dolls that were beautifully dressed were catching eye of every girl. The museum was very enriching to every mind and was creating an affinity towards science, the sole motive of the museum; and because of reason, the Birla Science Museum is gaining more popularity. It is a must visit place, especially if moving with kids.
