What is the most exciting about the “Science and Exploration Hall” is the ambience that has been created inside the hall. As soon as one steps into the hall, he/she will feel a sense of awe. With the tinkling of an eye, one can go back to 4 thousand million years ago and the hall would also present the source of the origin of life and how the evolution of life had taken place.
