What We Did in The Mind Museum

Science Explorers for the Day

[SPOILER ALERT] Some scenes may hamper your experience in the museum.  But for the curious folks, here's a sneak peek of our The Mind Museum adventure. :D

For starters, ate a giant chocolate bar for energy. "I wish."
Put on our scientist hats... "E=mc^2"
Umm tried to play lotto.  "Where's the ball?" x_X
Walked under a rainbow. "I'm walking on sunshine..."
Danced inside a brain.  "Hello, anybody there?"
Made a tornado.  "I wonder if we can make this bigger?"
Ate, and...
Threw up. "Not good, eh?"
And, did a #2. "Please not in public?!"
Became a giant in car-ville "Yes, you're mine! Wahahaha"
Got eaten by a whale
Shook hand with Mimo, the robot
Engulfed by gravity. "I must say, it's the coolest illustration of how the planets rotate!"
Got lost in the space chair. "And where have you been, miss?" x_X
Kinda fell asleep in the space dome (napagod na kasi x_X)
And, then

Left our shadows on the wall! (kinda like Peter Pan) :D

The Mind Museum is open for all.  Literally for all ages, from toddlers to the "young at heart". The exhibition has five (5) galleries namely: Atom, Life, Universe, Earth, and Technology.  It is very interactive.  It will invoke the use of all your senses: sight, touch, hearing, smell, and even taste!

In the Printing Press
Tada! "The Mind Museum"

To fully enjoy the story of science, visits to The Mind Museum are designed in 3-hour time intervals w/ max. number of visitors per time slot.  It is open Tuesdays - Sundays (closed on Mondays), with operating hours:
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.(Sat. & Sun only)

Explore at your own pace in the spirit of scientific discovery!

They advice each visitor to explore the galleries on their own to set their own pace in learning after a short briefing held in the lobby.  Tour guides or the "Mind Movers", as they call it, rove around the various exhibits to assist the museum visitors.  You can easily spot them since they're in a Segway transport, ain't that cool?

Bubble wrapped!

Out-side the museum proper is an 800 sqm themed park, "Nature's Artful Play".  The park includes four main play pockets: Water, Math, Music, and Living.   I personally enjoyed it!  Kinda, brought out the kid in me. Lol

Fail. Lol

Don't forget to drop by the Museum shop near the gates.  My husband, on the other hand, enjoyed that part with its cool souvenir items and telescopes. 

The Mind Museum is located at JY Campos Park, 3rd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Philippines.  We highly recommend you purchase your tickets online to avoid long lines.  Ticket prices for a 3-hour pass in the museum & park:  Adults -  P450 (Tue-Fri)/ P600 (Sat & Sun); Students (up to College) - P450; Public school students - P150; Teachers - P150; Park-access only - P100; An all-day pass is Php750 each.

    I wish we build more play parks in the country. Malls are ok, but open, clean, and safe play areas for kids are much needed too! :)

  16. i would love to visit the mind museum with my little man, i bet we will both enjoy the displays + the discoveries we will experience! hopefully we'll get to do that real soon! ;)

  17. Cool great pix! I enjoyed browsing all of it. Kudos to the people behind all this expensive yet very educational and important edifice. Was it a Dep-Ed project?
