Hello everyone! The Mind Museum had a 50% discount on their all day pass last March (Hooray for discounts!). 🙂 And because of that me and my bestfriend grabbed the chance to visit our country’s first class science museum.
The Mind Museum is located at the heart of Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. It was funded by private donations from different private local and foreign organizations. The museum consists of 250+ interactive exhibits that kids and even kids at heart will enjoy.
There are 5 main galleries inside the museum 4 of them are located at the first floor and the one remaining is in the second floor. First you will see the Hall of Philippine Science which showcases the works of Philippine scientists. I feel proud while looking at the different works of Filipino scientists. Aside from the 5 main galleries there is also an outdoor science park and botanical garden in which kids can roam around while exploring science.
Here are the highlights of our tour at the museum.
Inside the Atom gallery:
The biggest gallery in the museum. Here you can learn about atoms, cells, the brain and some science principles.
Inside the Life gallery:
With the life size whale shark 🙂 Whale sharks are the largest fish in the ocean measuring about 45 feet. They’re usually found on tropical warm oceans. They’re filter feeders meaning they feed on planktons, eggs of fishes and even small fishes.
Inside the Earth gallery:
Inside the Universe gallery:
Here you can learn about the Copernican heliocentrism theory. Copenican theory was founded by Nicolaus Copernicus. He is a mathematican and astronomer who developed the model of the universe in which the sun is the center. Another information that you will learn in this gallery are the 8 different phases of the moon and the life cycle of stars.
Inside the Technology galley (Second floor):
In this gallery you will learn the transition of technology ranging from simple to complex and from past to present.
At the Science park:
Kids can play and roam around while learning in this outdoor science park.
I really had a great time exploring the museum. We finished exploring the 5 galleries in 2 and a half hours.
