The Mind Museum Experience

The last time we where in the Philippines, someone recommended we visit The Mind Museum at The Fort in Taguig. But at that time we had a lot of errands to do so we were not able to go there.

This recent visit to Philippines, we made sure to include a trip to The Mind Museum.

The Mind Museum is a science museum and it is the first one of its scale and scope in the Philippines. They've made science accessible, fun and engaging to kids and to the kids at heart.

Their galleries or exhibitions cover Atom, Earth, Life, Universe and Technology. To be honest, I am not sure if EJ learned something but what I am sure of is that he did enjoy "playing" with the interactive exhibits. We all did. It was actually a fun afternoon.

Here are some of our pictures. I am sorry if the quality of the pictures are poor. I always forget to bring our DSLR. Lately, I just rely on my iPhone for picture taking. Sometimes I get good pictures outdoor but indoor is a different story. Note to self, must bring a real camera with me all the time.

We went with my brother, sis-in-law and niece Sam. The kids had great fun inside.

They have a feature exhibit called Biorhythm which will run until Feb 2013 only. Biorhythm was created by Science Gallery in Dublin, and presented at the World Science Festival in New York.

According to their website "BIORHYTHM Music and the Body will allow you to feel how music moves your body through an interactive bazaar of unique sonic experiences, installations, experiments and performances from musicians, engineers and neuroscientists from around the world." We did not check this out because it was another ticket. You have to pay additional P250.
