“Great experience for older kids”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

The Mind Museum has great science-based, interactive exhibits. My 7, 9 and 11 year old boys were very engaged with the hands-on learning. The outdoor bubble area kept them happy for a long time!

“Interactive Museum at the heart of BGC”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Located at the center of Manila's newest business district, BGC - there lies a huge architectural gem. What it contains is an interactive museum to entice the minds of young ones. With hands on displays and activities - place is ideal for lower grades field trips. Find it also interesting for adults who likes to recall prior science lessons.

Plan your visit and check if there is scheduled field trip. You don't want to be grabbing items with the kids and hearing them shout here and there. Still a lot more to improve on.

Located at Campos Park that covers entire block enclosed by Rizal Drive, 3rd Ave, 28th & 30th Ave. Just across Burgos Circle. Open parking is available next to it. Accessible also via Fort Bus - Upper West route.

“Very Good But Pricey”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

We've been there thrice, twice to the Museum and once to the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit.

The Good - hands-on, interactive, new.
The Could Be Better - cheaper ticket price, more exhibits. For a Science Museum that is only 2 years old some of the exhibits are sadly in need of repair already.

My children's favorites:
Aedi - the robot that welcomes the visitors. My youngest loves this robot.
Fossil Dig - the children love to dig and brush away sand to discover dinosaur fossils hidden underneath. This attraction is an excellent introduction to paleontology.
T-Rex (and his fossil poop) - It helped them grasp the size of dinosaurs (and their poop).

It's a good place for kids. If they get hungry there's a fastfood restaurant just outside the entrance. Next to it is a science "playground". But when my kids were playing they weren't paying attention to me explaining the science behind the playground sets or reading the signs. Still I was able to refer them back to the playground when they studied these in Science.

A highly recommended place to go in Taguig (Fort Bonifacio) for the entire family.

“Awesome interactive science museum”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

A really cool hands on science museum. Lots of things to see and do. Really more geared toward children, the museum is still pretty cool for adults. A little bit on the expensive side at 600 pesos a person (about $14 US).

“can be better”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

If one had no idea or opportunity to visit other museums or something similar, then this is okay... nothing much for children hungry for more knowledge...there is much much more that children and adults can absorb that what is there....
