Exploring The Mind Museum

My husband got two Mind Museum All Day Pass tickets after attending the Manila Mini Maker Faire. My son wanted to use the ticket immediately so I asked my husband if we could celebrate Father’s Day at Mind Museum and he agreed. My husband was teasing my son, “Happy Child’s Day” ba ngayon? Hehehe! 


Our initial plan was to go to the museum before the opening so we could maximize the all day pass ticket but I changed my mind because I wanted to eat at Texas Roadhouse, so we had an early lunch before we went to the museum.


Since we only have two all day pass tickets, we purchased another ticket and we’re contemplating kung All Day Pass ba o regular ticket kasi namamahalan ko sa P750 but what if nabitin yung anak ko sa 3 hours. After few minutes, the staff offered the promo “All Day Pass Ticket + Ayala Museum for P600”. Yey! Tipid kami ng P150. 

After paying, the staff gave us 1 FREE Ayala Museum ticket, 3 maps and bracelets. Wow, they improved na, 3 years ago kasi I was looking for a map and wala daw sila. Map is really important so guests can plan their trip. 

We’ve been to Mind Museum 3 years ago, so you could read my first post here and watch the video here. Since this was our second visit, I will just share the improvements, changes and new experiences. I was looking for the finding fossils and hugging vest activities but they are not available na. Napalitan na siya. 

Anyway, since we are late, we missed the Wild Conversations at 10:30 AM. The Mind Museum has 5 Main Galleries which is Atom, Life, Earth, Technology and Universe. There is also an outdoor Science in the Park which is beside the Jollibee. 

You can also watch 3D Films and Planetarium shows. So if you are buying a regular ticket, take note of the schedule of the shows so you won’t miss it. 



Our favorite gallery is the Universe, we spent most of our time here because there are three shows that we watched here, “Life: A Cosmic Story”, “Origins of Life” and “Awesome Astronomy”. While waiting for the show, my son enjoyed playing with this magnetic solar system. 


There are also Mind Movers at the Atom Gallery, where we watched different Science Demos. This is fun and you can also participate in their demo. We watched 3 demos during our last visit. You can check the video here



We also watched a show at the Earth Gallery, we only watched the “Birth Place” because we missed the “Ang Simula” shows, as in few minutes late kami. Nakalimutan ko, sayang! I’m not sure if the show is the same since we also watched “Ang Simula” during our first visit. 




Our favorite in Atom Gallery is the Static Ball, I still remember my first visit, ayaw tumayo ng buhok ko sa I was glad na tumayo na siya. Hehehe! Good thing that there is already a staff who operates this exhibit. 



 Aside from the main galleries, there are new exhibits that we can explore such as Color Play, Cave of Tiny Secrets, Sensory Earth, Astronauts Selfie, Earthrise, Living in Space, Encounter with the Solar System and Shape EmporiumThese were not available during our first visit. My son enjoyed the piano stairs. 






There is “The Teenage Brain Exhibit” at the second floor which we did not visit anymore because I’m not sure if my son will like it. While waiting for the 5PM show, we had snacks at Jollibee and check the playground outside. We missed this park during our first visit kasi hindi namin alam na meron. 




Then we watched the Awesome Astronomy at 5PM, I thought we are going to watch a video but I was wrong, Peder Decierdo discussed about the Astronomy, I learned about the sun, moon and stars so now when I look up the sky, I appreciate it more. 


Before, they have a souvenir store as in malaki siya, we bought souvenir key chain pa nga but now closed na yung store. They just have a small kiosk before the exit door. After 6 hours, our visit is over. Then we walked fast to the parking lot so we won’t be charge for another hour. We all know that parking in BGC is so expensive, we paid P250 for 6 hours. Waah! How about you, have you visited Mind Museum?

  2. Marami palang pwedeng gawin sa The Mind Museum. I'll make sure to bring my son and my daughter here when they're old enough for this. This will surely tickle their minds and appreciate Science even more. :D

  5. The last time we went to the Mind Museum, our little boy was still small. He wasnt able to appreciate most of the displays and was scared at the giant dino skeleton pa. I think its time to visit it once again.
