Do you Mind? - Mind Museum at BGC

It was my daughter's birthday yesterday.  Even at 19 she still wants to go to a museum ('guess that part she inherited from me).  So, after lunch we headed for the newest world class museum in the country  - the Mind Museum at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Philippines. Even on our 2nd visit, the museum still is new to us.  The first time we were there we checked out the exhibit on the human body and went to the science park where we played.  Yup, as old as we were, we enjoyed playing at the park.

Ikee and I bought our tickets ahead of my husband.  He had to park the car and it took a while for him to do so. When we got inside, we went straight to the Atom exhibit.  There was a demo experiment going on so we watched it.  It was rather fun specially when we were asked to go to a room where we temporarily left our shadow.  Wake up Peter Pan!  It's not just you who left his shadow.

There were other things that we did there.  The shows we watched were good specially the "Ang Simula"  which was done by ABS CBN (one of the Philippines' leading TV network).  It is a story of how science thinks the philippines evolved. Another one was the planetarium show although I liked the show at the planetarium in Manila years ago.

One of the highlights of the museum is the presence of the TREX skeleton.  I had seen one of those at the Museum of Natural History at Washington D.C. before but it's good to see one in Manila.

So, if you're planning to go visit a museum here, do include the Mind museum.  It's fun for both adults and kids I tell you.  Although they have a 3 hour visit which costs 600, the all day pass only costs 750.  Take the latter as you can't enjoy a museum with only 3 hours.  Oh, and they're closed on Mondays and are open Tuesdays to Sundays from 9 am to 6 pm.  Sorry for the pics by the way.  there was very little light and I didn't have a tripod (sheesh!).
