It is Nepal’s first and only one Science Museum at the national level located at Kirtipur, Kathmandu, Nepal, in the periphery of Tribhuvan University. Science Museum has training based education programs and learning by doing concept based Exhibits. The Science Museum was inaugurated by Honourable Minister Giriraj Mani Pokhrel, Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology on May 11, 2019, and since then it has been opened for the general public.

The museum is equipped with many educational and interactive exhibits that offer a unique visiting experience. The visitors can immerse themselves into a multitude of disciplines such as Physics, Biology, Geology, Music, Art, Space Science and much more in an entertaining fashion. To add the value of the experience, the museum currently consists of a humanoid robot and a 3D science theatre to make the interaction more interesting and powerful.

Our 3D science theatre is well equipped with a capacity of 80 people at a time. The movies are played on museum hours and visitors are free to select any of the available movie.

1. Journey to space (41mins)

Journey to Space 3D is an inspiring reflection on the remarkable achievements of NASA’s Space Shuttle program, including the assembly and launch of the International Space Station and the deployment of the Hubble Space Telescope. Missions like these have taught us how to live, build, and conduct science in space and helped to build the foundation for future space exploration. The film also features a fascinating showcase of the exciting plans that are underway for the next giant leap into space: landing humans on Mars.

2. Planet power (40mins)

PLANET POWER explores the history of electricity – from the first spark created by man’s hand to today’s industrial power plants. We meet scientists who changed the world, like Faraday, Franklin, and Tesla and we glimpse the future, as Solar Impulse becomes the first plane to complete a round-the-world flight powered only by the sun. With a mix of chalk animation, CGI, archival footage and spectacular aerials, the film also explores the challenges ahead: how to meet the growing energy needs of our industrialized world, while also protecting the health of our planet.

3. Space junk (37mins)

After 50 years of launching our dreams into space, we’re left with a troubling legacy: a growing ring of orbiting debris that casts a shadow over the future of space exploration. SPACE JUNK 3D is a visually explosive, sensory expanding voyage into our now-threatened Final Frontier. Experience mindboggling collisions, both natural and manmade. Soar from the stunning depths of Meteor Crater to an unprecedented view of our increasingly crowded orbits — 22,000 miles above Earth. Join us as the foremost expert, also known as the “Father of Space Junk,” guides us through the challenges we face in protecting them, forging a new age of space discovery.
