Mindblow tour at The Mind Museum

Last Sunday, me and my family went to The Mind Museum and checked it out. I've been planning to visit it but I'm waiting for the right time where Prince can enjoy and appreciate museum because this is not a place for playing but for learning.

We arrived at 12:30 pm and went to ticket booth to redeem our passes. Thanks to travelbook.ph for our free all day passes. Everything was so easy and they gave us our wrist badge to enter the museum.

We're so excited to explore the museum :)

Universe gallery is the first gallery we visit. The Beginning and Majesty of the Cosmos. The Universe Gallery showcases humankind’s wondrous fascination with outer space. It features exhibits that show how all of life, as we know it, found its atomic beginnings in the stars. It enfolds visitors in the fundamental elements at play in the cosmos.

Here we are landing on the moon 🌑

For space lover, this is the perfect place for you to know more about the moon, stars, planets, the sun and everything in space. They also have this small room looks like a planetarium called Space Shell to watch and learn more about the galaxy.

The next gallery we visit is Earth Gallery:Nature Across the Breadth of Time. Since one of our main purpose here is to see the Dinosaur, we are so excited to see it live. The Earth Gallery features the first permanent T. rex exhibit in the country along with other unique exhibits that focus on the forces at work in shaping and reshaping the Earth.

There's a mini stage to take a closer look and have a photo op with the dinosaur.

The third gallery we visit is Life Gallery: The Exuberant Varieties of Life. The Life Gallery showcases the exuberance of a living planet in all its forms. It features the various habitats and the astonishing number and variety of organisms that thrive on our planet. 

Here in Life Gallery we learned a lot about our origin, animals, human body parts, DNA, inheritance and a lot more about life. There are interactive games and boards that kids will surely enjoy.

We also watched a 3D animation about Earth's beginning. They have timeslot and make sure to check it on the screen.

Last gallery in first floor we visit is Atom Gallery. The Atom Gallery is the gallery with the most number of interactive exhibits. It contains the very elemental forces that are so familiar that we take them for granted like gravity and electromagnetism. It also presents the counter intuitive quantum world that resembles nothing in everyday experience, yet serves as the basis for much of the technology of today.

One of my favorite during our museum tour is this Science Demo. Mind Movers will demonstrate different experiment each timeslot and this is really fun because they let kids as a volunteer and experience the experiment. My son was so happy to do volunteering, he always raise his hand whenever Mind Mover ask for it. I actually learned new things about Science and really had fun with this.

On the second floor, you'll see Technology Gallery: The Technology Gallery is the largest of all the galleries. It is the only exhibition space on the second level, overlooking the other four galleries. This gallery presents technology not as a mere tool, gadget or industrial advancement but as means to flesh out human values and to help us become better humans.

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.

I enjoyed technology gallery because it has a lot to offer and I'm a tech savy mom. I learned how emerging technology is and its improvement.

Before going home, we visit Science-in-the-Park playground. I'm impressed that this park is not only about physical activities but there is still part for learning.

Overall we enjoyed our tour in Mind Museum. It's a refreshing weekend for us and I'm happy that Prince appreciates exhibit or museum like this. He actually wants us to go back.

Good points:

🧠 Very interactive and a lot of topics, subject and experimentation to learn
🧠 Facilities are well maintained and very clean, well organized and well thought.
🧠 Kid-friendly and each sections has description or guidelines.
🧠 For me, ticket prices are reasonable

Not so good points:

🧠 Some equipment or displays are no longer working or not well maintained
🧠 I have high expectation with 3D animation but the screen at the middle I think was broken so when we wore the glasses, it's a bit giddy.
🧠 I hope they add more demonstration or experimentation.
