for P600 for adults and P450 for students with school ID, we learned about the brain, the universe, how things worked and 3D film showing of how the universe began. There were experiments, video clips and pictures. i thought it was great that private companies and individuals donated money to build this museum.

the kids, however were more interested in playing around, having their pictures taken and touching the exhibits. They were not listening to the guides nor were they interested in reading the facts.

I suggest that people be given a fact book of some sort explaining the exhibits and experiments. the place is poorly lit to read the fact cards. it is also hard to hear the sounds from the video clips.

All in all the museum was worth visiting once.

Avail the All-Day Pass so you can have more time for interactive exhibits. However, some of the exhibits are under repair. Probably, some children or students were too eager to interact with it.

The place presents well from the outside, it's nice to see the trees around and open areas.

The first disappointment was at the entrance (the price is ridiculous for the Philippines, p600 per adults, p400 for childrens), they didn't even have a map to provide. That's when I became a bit sceptical.
Then was a serie of disappointments. Apart from a few interactive attractions that are nice for kids (for 20min maybe), the rest of the content is poor, uninteresting, poorly presented.
Even the staff was unfriendly

In conclusion, go spend your money elsewhere and take your kids through an online tour. There's many ressourceful websites where kids will learn more accurate information that in this "museum".

Together with other teachers, we had great experience exploring the museum for almost 3 hours. I didn't expect we already have this in the Philippines. I recommend this for students because the museum is interactive where students can manipulate things and learn from it. You should tell them what to expect and what to look into so that they will not be overwhelmed with information. Surely they will enjoy it and cheap for P150 for 3 hours tour (P500 for non-students and teachers though).

We went here with three kids (ages 5-7) and they had a nice time with the interactive attractions. For Philippines standards, it was top class. In other words, it wasn't done cheaply and they didn't scrimp. However, they failed to give us a map or brochure when we entered and just sort of had to guess our way around. We asked one of the people working there what time the shows were and he gave us so many different times and was confused with what direction he was pointing to. They are NOT helpful at all. There are more security guards making sure people aren't doing anything that isn't allowed. I really think there should be more people guiding you around the place and giving information. And the show we watched that was supposed to feel like a planetarium was made possible by a projector facing a MacBook. Cheap.
