After visiting Narada falls, we had brief halt at the museum which was of course closed till 14 June but I had got info from the rangers office and the place offers scenic views too.

Enjoyed learning with the kids on a school field trip here. The park rangers were very informative and enaged the students. Took a short hike nearby where the kids got to measure temperatures of the various springs. Absoultely beautiful, historic buildings. Great learning opportunity.
