About Sci Bono Discovery Museum

 The world-class museum that supports math, science and technology. A great place to learn about science and get the chance to try it yourself. There don't have "no touching" signs anywhere in the museum, encouraging people to touch and learn. There are teachings about the internal functioning of a car, the galaxy, electricity, chemistry and a lot more. Lovely for the kids, especially when they will have the chance to try science on their own. The Caves are modelled in 3D. Playing with RC cars, kicking footballs, figuring out puzzles is a great experience.

Must See

  • The rock cave
