Nehru Centre has it all. The complex has Art-exhibition hall, state-of-art Auditoriums for holding Theatre and other shows, a digital library and a planetarium. But, the best part is the Discovery of India exposition. Such majestic is that permanent exposition displaying India from ancient ages till Independence, that one would seem lost in that labyrinth

The star attraction of this science museum is Nehru Planetarium which is a centre for astronomical studies and meetings of renowned science personalities. Telescopes outside this planetarium enable visitors to explore the blue sky. Several programmes and competitions are organised here for students. Workshops for kids here are heard to be very good.

Nehru Centre is located next to the Nehru Planetarium and NSCI club in Mumbai. The building has a number of conference and exhibition halls and wedding halls. It also has a few art galleries. The coffee shop is not well stocket. It does have some reasonable amount of parking which is a boon in Mumbai.

This is not the best laid out space. It has a large central place which is open but not much else. There are smaller rooms which hold art exhibitions and have conference rooms. The largest room is used for bigger exhibitions. However a lot of space in the center being left open makes the other rooms cramped and one feels... More

Indira Gandhi on November 2, 1972 on a six-acre plot leased by the Government of Maharashtra. The centre is spread over a very large 20,000 sq.ft. of space. It also houses a Planetarium,... More

Went to a two day conference, the place is cold, devoid of culture and the coffee shop is a bad joke, avoid the machine tea and coffee, they use in filtered tap water in it.
