Pinsteps. Birla Science Museum

The Birla Science Museum, located in Hyderabad, India, is a popular destination for science enthusiasts of all ages. It is part of the Birla Planetarium and Science & Technological Museum, which was inaugurated in 1985. The institution is the result of the Birla Educational Trust's efforts to promote science education and awareness.

The museum is divided into several sections, each dedicated to a specific scientific discipline or theme. These sections include a Dinosaurium, a gallery dedicated to Nobel laureates, and sections on science in India and the universe at large. The museum showcases a wide range of exhibits on subjects like physics, biology, chemistry, electronics, robotics, and much more. These exhibits are designed to be interactive, engaging, and educational, making complex scientific concepts accessible and understandable.

The Dinosaurium, one of the highlights of the museum, displays a 160-million-year-old mounted Kotasaurus yamanpalliensis, a dinosaur found in India. The exhibit gives visitors a chance to understand these prehistoric creatures and their lives better.

The Nobel Gallery showcases replicas of the original Nobel Medals in the fields of Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Peace, Literature, and the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. It also provides information about the laureates, their life, and their significant contributions.

The museum also houses a Planetarium, which offers daily sky shows in multiple languages. The shows cover a wide array of topics, including the solar system, eclipses, the cosmos, and other celestial phenomena.
