A Visit to the Mind Museum at Bonifacio Global City - Taguig

This might be a bit late entry as I was very preoccupied during the Christmas season. But, hey, better late than never! So, I'm posting about our short visit to the Mind Museum last December 2012. The Mind Museum is located in Bonifacio Global City Taguig. It's actually a promising business district. The first time I visited the area, it felt like I am not in the Philippines at all. It felt the same way this time around, especially when we arrived at the Mind Museum which is truly world-class.

There were four time slots to choose from: 9am, 12pm, 3pm and 6pm. This is so because each batch of guests are given around 3 hours to be able to go around the different science exhibits. It was either you avail of the Museum Pass and choose among the allotted time slot which cost Php 600 per person or purchase an all day pass where you can visit the museum any time of the day for limited hours which cost Php 750. Luckily, we had our school ID and were given a discount for teachers and it only costed Php 150 per person. Talk about major discount!

We arrived early for the 3pm slot and once we got in, the museum guide gathered us in the stairs for a short introduction and rules while inside the facility. So, we were introduced to a robot named Aedi (IDEA spelled backwards).

And after the short intro, we were separated into 2 groups. One group started on the other half of the museum and the other group into the other side so as to avoid commotion and that every one gets a chance to manipulate the exhibits.

I did not bring my slr, so, I can only share pictures from my samsung phone. Here are some of the photos I took while inside.

It was like a photo booth except that only your shadows are taken a picture of. :)

My personal take in our Mind Museum experience:
  • It was truly one of the best and neat-looking museums in Manila as compared to the Science Centrum and Museong Pambata which we visited way back elementary and high school.
  • It's an advantage that they let people take pictures unlike in other museums where it was restricted.
  • It's a bit pricey for Php 650 but it was all worth it. You don't have to buy the all day pass. Just be on time and you will be able to finish touring around in less than 3 hours. 
  • I was not that amazed with the exhibits because you might have encountered them in some other museums. But, it's very ideal for kids to see as well as adults. 
  • The museum presented human origins from the vastness of the universe down to the tiniest atom in our body. It's more like an "evolution-themed" museum.
For the geeks and curious minds, better head off to the Mind Museum!
