The Mind Museum

The Mind Museum is the newest museum in the Metro. It just opened last March 16 and deals mostly with science. Being the science fanatics/nerds that we are, we immediately planned our visit and booked our tickets at the soonest possible time.

As soon as we entered, we were greeted by Aedi, the talking humanoid robot, which also gave a brief introduction of the museum.

The Mind Museum is divided into 5 sections. The first section we viewed is the Universe, which is all about space, the cosmos and its origins. Here, we found the Space Shell, where we watched a short presentation of how it all started and how its gonna look in the distant future.

The next section we visited is the Earth section. This section is all about the planet we live in, how it all started and how we came to be. It had a replica of Stan, the most complete skeleton fossil of a T-Rex ever found. It also has a lot of information about geology and earthquakes.

I absolutely loved their holographic globe, which shows the surface of the earth from 600 million years ago, how the continents move and also the surfaces of all the planets and satellites of the solar system.

The next section we viewed is the Atom, which is connected to the Universe through the Light Bridge.

This section is mostly about Physics and Chemistry, more specifically, particle and quantum, but also has exhibits about waves and forces.

We just love the static electricity ball exhibit! Everyone should try this out!

The next gallery we went to is the Life Gallery. This section deals mainly with all kinds of life in our planet, from micro to macro and from our DNA to the rest of the human anatomy.

The last section we visited is the Technology gallery. This is located in the 2nd floor and is the most interactive part of the museum. It exhibits the history of technology from ancient to modern. You'll find puzzles, video games, robots and many more in this part of the museum.

Finally, after seeing all the galleries inside the museum, we went to Science in the Park, which is just in front of the Mind Museum. This is a park where the playground equipment are all related to science. So kids learn something while they enjoy the playground.

The Mind Museum is located at 3rd Ave. inside The Fort Bonifacio Global City.   Tickets are at P600 for adults and P450 for children for the 3 hour tour. Or you can get the all day pass for P750 each. You can reserve your slot and buy your tickets online through the Mind Museum website, www.themindmuseum.org.

There are a number of fast food restaurants and cafes a few blocks away from the museum so you can get a quick bite after. Or, if you have a whole day pass, get yourself stamped before eating so you can come back later.

And now for more pictures.
