The Science City reopened on October 15. It sent a wave of cheer among science aficionados. In the first two days of its reopening, the Science City received a footfall of 100 visitors. The Science City theatre, which plays I Max, 3D and films based on climate change and also serves as a planetarium, remained the hot favourite of the visitors on the first day of its reopening. However, a fresh notification mentioned that the theatres will remain closed amid Covid guidelines. However, the rest of the Science City and its sprawling grounds are very much available for visitors. The other exhibits which remained sought after include the lazer show, flight simulator, earthquake simulator, virtual, health and life sciences galleries and the panorama. The Science City has reopened to visitors after a gap of seven months.
