A Visit in The Mind Museum | The Fort, Taguig

One of my goals before I leave my current work at The Fort, Bonifacio Global City in Taguig is to visit The Mind Museum. Since I always pass by this very noticeable structure everyday, I promised myself to be one of the first guests on its official opening day on March 16.

..that didn't happened though. I got so delighted to have the chance to visit The Mind Museum on its soft opening. Actually since last month, I've already seen a lot of kids who had their field trip in The Mind Museum. Anyway, thanks to Mr. Winston / Globe for my complimentary ticket, and to my boss Chris for allowing me to go in the museum even if I just came in the office. ^_^

Science Comes Alive @The Mind Museum

Journey of Wonder


The Mind Museum is the Philippines' first world-class science museum. It is planned to have over 250 interactive exhibits (some are still under development) that will erase the notion that science is cold, boring and unapproachable. - BGC

and with Aedi the robot, learning science will be more fun


Five main galleries: the story of the Universe, the story of an Atom, the story of Life, Earth, and Technology.

The Story of the Atom
The Atom Gallery is the gallery with the most number of interactive exhibits. It will contain the very elemental forces that are so familiar that we take them for granted – gravity and electromagnetism. It will present the counter-intuitive quantum world which resembles nothing in the ordinary, everyday experience, yet serves as the basis for much of the technology we find so common and take for granted – computers, mobile phones, lasers, and many medical technologies. - BGC









The Story of Life
The Life Gallery is the gallery which feature’s the defining exhibit of the museum: The Human Brain. The gallery will feature the exuberance of a living planet in all its forms. It will feature the various habitats that nurture an astonishing number and kinds of organisms. This gallery will also feature the inner spaces that inhabit this life in the form of molecules called DNA. - BGC











The Story of The Universe

The Universe Gallery will showcase humankind’s wondrous fascination with outer space, and will include the mini-planetarium. It will feature exhibits that will show how all of life, as we know it now, found its atomic beginnings in the stars in space. It will enfold visitors in the fundamental elements and forces that are at play in the universe. It will also include wondrous images from the Hubble Space Telescope as well as a graphic history of humankind’s quest into other parts of the solar system.









The Story of The Earth
The Earth Gallery will feature the first T-REX exhibit in the country along with other unique exhibits that will focus on the earth and nature. Knowing natural history is the way we can educate museum visitors on how long it took the planet to give us what we now inhabit. The Earth Gallery will feature natural history from 4.6 billion years ago.












The Story of Technology as of this writing, this is still nearing completion
At 680 sqm, this is the largest of all the galleries, and is the only exhibition space on the second level, overlooking the other four galleries. Its centrepiece, The Human Face of Technology – a 360° screen showing a constantly updated video of stories told by people about their favorite technologies and why they love them.
This gallery presents technology not as a mere tool, gadget, or industrial advancement but as means to flesh out human values, to help us become better humans. Thus, the gallery is divided into five major themes with each theme occupying a Node. The themes of the Nodes are: How We Live, Who We Are, How We Know, How Things Work, and Here to There.











The Mind Museum is an educational and enjoyable place to learn. Surely everyone, not just kids, will gain more knowledge- in a fun way. By the way, there are Mind Movers inside. Each exhibit is designed to be discovered on its own, but for those who would like a mind moving experience, the Mind Movers are available to give guided tours of the centerpieces of each gallery. A little feedback though, the management should label which exhibit are allowed to touch and which are not. The guards were having a hard time to remind some kids about touching a particular exhibit.

Overall, it was worth visiting. Im glad that we finally have something like this in the Philippines. The youngsters are very lucky to have a field trip in this world class science museum. When I was young, either sa Manila Zoo or Picnic Grove lang ang fieldtrip. Haha Anyway I will bring Draco, my 2-y/o pamangkin, once he begins schooling. Baka di nya pa ma-appreciate ngayon. ^_^

Sumi Go said...

Ayos talaga yung Tunnel na umiikot :p

docgelo said...

Pinoy kids deserve this!
I know Gabby will appreciate such interactive museum. However, i wish the cost would be more affordable to public.

haerose said...

ang ganda, lapit lang din to sa office namin, kaya lang medyo pricey ha ^^

Karla said...

Ang cute nung malaking brain! :D Sayang, wala pang Mind Museum nung nag-aaral pa ako ng Nursing, hehe. Sana makadalaw din diyan balang araw. Naalala ko din ang movie na Night at the Museum, hehe. :)

khantotantra said...

noong time ko naman, wax museum ang sikat lagi pag field trip. hehehe.

gusto yung part ng mga dinosaurs :D

gillboard said...

what i hope is that this place is more permanent and di siya mawala. i remember visiting some museums like this in my childhood na wala na ngayon.

the place reminds me very much of Te Papa Museum in New Zealand.

hitokirihoshi Jr said...

hmmm dami ng pics, alam ko na kung ano makikita sa loob. sana makapunta ako rito kasama ng mga kabarkada ko.

akala ko ito yung nasa sm moa pero iba pa pala at mukhang mas marami ang makikita.

joan | the backpack chronicles said...

I want to go there too! Sana matuloy yung proposal ni Darwin sa Marketing nila na mag-hold ng bloggers event. Di kasi afford sa ngayon dahil andami ko pang nakatenggang gastos para sa mga upcoming trips.

darwin said...

The cost may be to pricy but that 600pesos will benefit 3 students from a public school who cant afford the entrance fee. Promoting Science and Helping educating people regardless of your status in life are just some of our main goal. Hope to see you all there.

Thanks Chyng for blogging about it.

Jenniya said...

Ang nice! Kaso ang mahal... :)

Ilang millions kaya ang budget at nagastos nila dito? Magoogle nga. Kapag nakakakita ako ng mga ganito, yan ang pumapasok sa isip ko.

Price of innovations now is very expensive. Gusto kong pumunta. I want to see their digital media contents too at yung mga matututunan.

Ang ganda ng mga pics. Hindi shakey ang hands. :) Happy weekend. :)
