About The Science Centre And Planetarium

History

The Regional Science Centre and Planetarium, Calicut—one of the most visited places in Calicut and one of the most active science centres under the umbrella of the National Council of Science Museums, Ministry of Culture, Government of India —is home to more than 15,000 square feet of hands-on exhibits designed to spark scientific inquiry and creativity. This place presents a plethora of facilities to delight all people of all age by its diversity of themes. We regularly hold indoor and outdoor events related to science - each one more fascinating than the last one. Visit the center and come out with an enhanced understanding of our world - terrestrial and beyond. We are planning an upgrade for our forthcoming Silver Jubilee on 2022.

This centre was inaugurated on 1997 by the Shri.(Late) E.K.Nayanar, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Kerala. Planetarium, Fun Science gallery, Children’s activity corner, Life Science, Science Park, Auditorium & Activity hall were the facilities available for visitors during the beginning period.

In 2006 old auditorium was converted to 3D theatre. This facility was inaugurated in 2006 by Shri.E.K.Ahmed, Hon’ble Union Minister of state for external affairs.
