“Too pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

The ground level was amazing. My kids enjoyed it. We expected more on the second level but got disappointed! It was as if they just put it there just so there would be a second floor. They should have a tour guide to explain things. Though we were informed that we can approach a staff should we have questions. My 8 year old asked questions which they couldn't answer. My 13 year old ended up explaining it to his little brother.

“Educational, great for kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

I went here just a while ago to celebrate my birthday today. The rate was 450 for students( you have to present your ID).when we entered, we were greeted by a robot that set the rules and instructions for the museum. After that, there were many stalls that inform you about volcanoes, animals,etc. Once u go deep inside, youll see a room full of constellation ( full of stalls also) its very creative and hands-on, youll really learn something from the board/stalls around. Its like really being inside the mind, where all your thoughts could possibly be there but the scientifc and biological subjects of course. There are giants timelines of dinosours and rocks and other animals. There's a giant bone of dinosaurs where you can go up the stairs and have a great pose/ picture with it. Also, giant DNA and brain, the cells. After that there's this giant ball that when you touch it your hair goes up! Its like a magnet or something. Also there's the shadow box where the camera captures the shadow of the pose. Its really enjoyable! And you should really visit the science-in-the park! Its included in the ticket! There's this really giant bubble that when you pull, it can wrap you inside! I really enjoyed it! However i think you have to be in 3 hrs max. If you exceed youll be forced to get out.

“The Mind Boggling Mind Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

I took my 15 yr old kid to the Mind Musuem in Global City in January of this year. We purchased our tickets online. You just go to their website and buy your tickets there. The good thing is they show you their schedule and you can choose the most convenient date and time for you. The price is very reasonable. My kid got a discount because he's a student. There are discounts for students and teachers. Parking was readily accessible. There are parking areas around the musuem.We were welcomed by a robot, that didn't quite impress me. But that's ok. Because the next things we saw and interacted with were quite worth it. The Space Shell is cool. It's a dome where you sit down and watch a video of the story of the universe. There is also the Hour-Glass gallery where you can watch in 3D of how everything started on earth. There are many things in the musuem that is quite interesting. There are wax figures of Human evolution. Mind boggling things like the rotating tunnel/bridge. I've never experienced that before and it's worth trying. Just make sure you can control sea-sick motion and dizziness!! There are a lot of things to see like the moon, an astronaut, a whole dinosaur relic, a whale shark etc. There is also a static ball which is fun to try and the shadow box is very interesting. I was able to take a pic with the dinosaur and it's really cool :) It's a must try!! It isn't as complete as the mind museums abroad but it's good enough for kids and adults :) There isn't much choices for food there, they have Jollibee but that's all. But why would you go there when there are a lot of restaurants around Global city? Their souvenir shop is nice but everything there is expensive!! They need to mark the items down if they want to sell.

“Indeed Learning is fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

We celebrated my hubby's pre-birthday and our 3yr old son post birthday celebration here .
The place is really neat with so many things to learn from. A very good place for kids to explore more about science..the universe, the human race...and more.

The prize is kinda pricey @ P750 per head for an all-day pass, as you don't really need to stay there for the whole day exploring for everything. But it was better than taking the 3 hours pass @P600.

The playground outside the building too was also nice where the kids can get to play with bubbles(not the regular bubbles stuff), see-saw, slides and many more stuff.

This place is amazing..and our son had fun while we were there and so as we.

“Ok but nothing great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Mind museum has some nice offerings. The electric ball which gets your hair up is very nice. On the whole though, it is rather forgettable.
