  •     Though commonly known as the B M Birla Science Museum, the B M Birla Science and Technological Museum was established in 1990.

  • Located very near to the Alliance Francaise, the B M Birla Science Museum is situated in Saifabad. The B M Birla Science museum is acknowledged as one of the greatest sites of learning small and great facts that are relate with science. It also an institute of research and development. 
  •    The entire area of the B M Birla Science museum is divided into various segments with distinct titles marked for the each individual section. 
  •  The Planetarium offers daily sky shows (in Telugu and English) reciting various aspects of the enigmatic Cosmos, the mind boggling mysteries of the Universe, the undying comets, the Hubble Space Telescope, Eclipses, the puzzling Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO's) and the very recent clash of the Titans. As the sky show begins, the visitors are virtually transferred into the galaxy as they watch a large canopy of dark sky, full of shining stars looking down upon them. The convincing background sound effect multiplies the feel of being in outer space, which adds to the excitement and exhilaration.

  •  The most recent addition to the Planetarium is the Dinosorium - a new wing which houses, the fossil of 160 million years old "Kotasaurus Yamanpalliensis", excavated in Adilabad district. 
  • Apart from this highlight, the Dinosaurium also has a collection of smaller fossils of dinosaur eggs, marine shells and fossilized tree trunks. The place always succeeds in enthralling people with its breathtaking sky shows of mysterious universe. It is the one place in the city, which should not be missed out by children. The Planetarium remains closed on the last Thursday of every month.
