Pimpri Chinchwad Science Park (PCSP), a unique, non-formal science learning centre in the industrial twin-township of Pimpri Chinchwad, was inaugurated on February 8, 2013. Pimpri Chinchwad Science Park was set up with a capital cost of Rs.850 lakhs, shared equally by Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) and the Government of India. The corporation also provided approximately 7 acres of land for setting up the project, and the Science Park was developed under joint auspices of the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) and Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation.
Pimpri Chinchwad Science Park was developed in an attempt to initiate well coordinated science communication and popularisation activities in the region. The Centre has a built-up area of approximately 4000 sq. m., housing three permanent galleries, a temporary exhibition hall, an inflatable-dome planetarium, a science demonstration area, an activity corner, an auditorium, a 3D science show facility, a library cum conference hall, and a workshop for maintenance and development of exhibits.
