Things to Do in Kolkata

  • Science City

    The largest of its kind in the Indian subcontinent, the Science City operates under the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), Ministry of Culture, Government of India. Inaugurated on 1st July 1997 by the then Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujral, this centre features several galleries and halls, each of which educates visitors about both heard and unheard scientific principles. Dynamotion Hall, Earth Exploration Hall, Maritime Centre, Evolution Park and Space Odyssey are important galleries of Science City. Within Dynamotion Hall, there are four sections - Illusions (interactive exhibits), Fresh Water Aquarium (26 tanks containing different fish species), Live Butterfly Enclave (live butterflies) and Powers of Ten (43 exhibits of the universe). Earth Exploration Hall is a two-storey building that displays intriguing details about Earth's southern and northern hemisphere. In Maritime Centre, the maritime history of India is thoughtfully depicted. Many unique artefacts, dioramas and interactive exhibits related to shipping and navigation systems are showcased here.

    Measuring approximately 1300 sq m in area, the Evolution Park features 7 large walkways, 71 robotic pre-historic animals, 140 early plant models and 26 dinosaurs – making it an attraction in itself. The story behind the evolution of some of the extinct animal species is well portrayed in this park. Space Odyssey that boasts of 3D Vision Theatre is one of the main points of interests of the Science City. Equipped with 150 special effect projectors and Astrovision 10/70 large-format film projection system, the theatre offers an unforgettable 3D viewing experience. In addition, it has a 30-seater motion simulator called 'Time Machine' and a set of 35 exhibits based on reflection known as 'Mirror Magic'.

    The Science Park - an amusement park with rides like Caterpillar Ride, Musical Fountain, Road Train, Gravity Coaster, Monorail Cycle and Cable Cars, is an integral part of the Science City. Besides, there are several physical and life science exhibits and a butterfly nursery in this park. Another important aspect of the attraction is the Convention Centre Complex that houses a Grand Theater (2232 seating capacity), Mini Auditorium (392 seating capacity) and Seminar Building. Used for organising conferences, meetings and workshops, the Seminar Building has eleven spacious halls of different seating capacities.

  • St. John's Church

    Quaint, religiously significant and utterly magnificent - St. John's Church is one of Kolkata's most-visited attractions. Established in 1787, this is the third oldest church and among the first public buildings built by the East India Company in Kolkata. It served as Kolkata's Anglican Cathedral until it was transferred to St. Paul’s Cathedral in the year 1847.

    The foundation stone of this historic edifice was laid by Warren Hastings (former British Governor General of India) on 6th April 1784, on the land donated by Maharaja Nabo Kishen Bahadur. Modelled on London's 'St. Martin-in-the-Fields', this church boasts of brilliant Neoclassical style of architecture.

    Framed by tall columns, the church building has a stately portico and large stained windows. The use of blue-grey marble on the floor adds more to its exquisiteness. On the walls, there are plaques, memorial tablets and statues of British army officers. The main altar, which features a graceful stained glass window on the right and a painting of the Last Supper to the left, is simple in design yet elegant in looks. An oddly inappropriate epitaph of James Achilles Kirkpatrick and a plaque of the great-great-grandfather of historian William Dalrymple - James Pattle on the southern walls of the church are captivating.

    An interesting fact associated with St. John's Church is that it was constructed on an old graveyard. Its compound still houses a good number of tombs and memorials, each of which has a beautiful design.
