Yes, we know that it falls bang smack in the middle of the week this year, a Wednesday. But surely, you could spend some time in giving them a special treat? That’s why we are giving you a list of places right now so that you can plan your visit well in advance. So that you can give the little ones the most precious present of all – your time.
National Science Centre, Delhi
The world of science is magical when you are not familiar with its mechanisms, which is why the National Science Centre is perfect for kids. Situated in Pragati Maidan, the National Science Centre is home to seven galleries sprawled across eight levels, including a splendid planetarium, a library, and a cafeteria, and is certain to keep your child fascinated for hours.
10:00 AM – 5:30 AM daily
Sudha Cars Museum, Hyderabad
Every child would be excited with cars. And what if the cars are in the shape of a burger or a lipstick? Let your child enjoy one of the wackiest and most entertaining museums in the world with the Sudha Cars Musuem. All the objects are the handiwork of the very talented Mr Sudhakar who also holds a Guinness World Record for making the largest tricycle in the world.
9:30 AM – 6:30 PM daily
Nicco Park, Kolkata
For some adrenaline-inducing fun, step into Nicco Park, the amusement park which seems to be straight out of a child’s dream. From pool parties to roller coaster rides, from bowling to merry-go-rounds, you name it, they have it. The number of rides is endless, so make sure to begin early if you want to make the most of this day trip. The cafeteria within the park wraps up the experience beautifully.
10:30 AM – 7:30 PM daily
Muttukadu Lake, Chennai
Children learn through experiences, not words. Start early in order to ensure that they feel connected to nature and its creations. Located just 40kms from Chennai on ECR, Muttukadu Lake is a great place for children to get away from the city and experience a bit of nature. Go boating and walk around the lake. Mornings and evenings are the best time for this, so it is also a very convenient activity to fit in on a working day too.
Lumbini Gardens, Bangalore
Located on the bank of the gushing Nagavara Lake, the Lumbini Gardens is a place which is a perfect balance between serenity and adventure. Besides being a place to sit back and relax, while letting the fresh air rejuvenate your senses, this place is also famed for the boat rides, amusement rides, and the Wave Pool for kids. The ambience of the park, along with its eco-friendly surroundings is a major plus as well.
11:00 AM – 7:00 PM daily
Taraporewala Aquarium, Mumbai
It is India’s aquarium and is one of the chief attractions in Mumbai. But what makes it even better is its location in Marine Drive. Let your children look at colourful aquatic creatures. Afterwards, take them for delicious snacks along Marine Drive, and let them feel the waves at Chowpatty Beach.
10:00 AM – 8:00 PM weekdays
This Children’s Day, surprise your child with a visit to these places. Spend some time and we are certain that you are going to have a ball yourself!
