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 presents  information in a way that is more fun and interesting than the textbook knowledge one gains in schools. With demonstrations and practical experiments, science is taught in a way that not only entertains and educates school students but adults as well. Themes related to water, nuclear power, science and technology, biology, communication, pre-historic life and emerging technologies are covered in the museum, which houses 137 interactive exhibits.
