Briefly describe the history of the museum, its collection and donors.

With galleries like 'Water: The Elixir of Life', 'Hall of Nuclear Power', and 'Pre-Historic Life Gallery', the National Science Centre puts forth science and development in a way that is far more fun and interesting than the textbook knowledge one gains in schools. With demonstrations and practical experiments, science is taught in the museum in a manner that not just lures school students, but also adults. Themes of water, nucleur power, science and technology through history, biology, communication, pre-historic life, and emerging technologies are covered in the museum. There are 137 interactive hands-on exhibits that one could engage with.
