More About Experimenta

Experimenta Science Centre is set up over a space of 40,000 Sq. ft. with modern amenities and over 120 interactive science exhibits that matches world class standards. Experimenta aims to offer students a playful approach to Science and Technology, with specially designed, hands-on exhibits which promotes a nurturing educational experience overall. The Centre has well curated write-ups and information boards to explain about the science behind each exhibit and a team of Science Communicators to assist children and the public to explore Experimenta effectively.

The exhibits in the science centre are very carefully chosen from across the world and have been arranged under various categories such as Motion, Sound, Illusion, Optics, Maths, Nature, Mechanics, Power & Energy, Light and Colours.

We have guided tours available for school groups to ensure that general visitors get sufficient time to explore and experience each exhibit. The exhibits are spread in such a manner that group activities on certain exhibits are also possible to inculcate teamwork.

The Science Centre also houses STEM Labs (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) which has various laboratories such as Maker’s Space, Activity Labs, Physics Lab, Robotics Lab etc., where students across private and government schools can gain practical knowledge by carrying out experiments under qualified mentors.

It is estimated to easily take around 3 hours to play or interact with all exhibits. Those who are constrained by time, can visit the Centre again to take catch up on the missed out exhibits.

The Experimenta Science Centre, located on the Second Floor of the main building, is accessible by a friendly ramp & Lift, adequately lit & well aerated and provides the visitors an enriching experience and time well spent in learning science in a fun filled manner.

Experimenta Science Centre will be open from 9 AM to 6.30 PM on all days except Mondays and National Holidays. We have individual and combo tickets with special discounted rates for groups and especially for children from government schools.

This entire concept is one of a kind and is our dedication to the budding science enthusiasts from around the world who would enjoy learning science in a fun way. Experimenta Science Centre will be a great resource of learning for generations to come and definitely a Landmark for Coimbatore!

Experimenta will be open for public from 1st March 2023
