The Mind Museum is the first world-class science museum in the Philippines. It is a P1 billion project built purely from private donations through the non-profit Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. It is dedicated to providing an extraordinary educational experience that promotes and inspires the public understanding of science.
At the ground floor are the four (4) Main Galleries ---Universe, Earth, Life and Atom---the Special Exhibition hall where the Da Venci the Genius Exhibit is ongoing until Nov.30, and the Mind Museum Store.
This giant replica of a T-Rex sure is the central element of the "Earth Gallery". In my knowledge, you can never find any similar display elsewhere.Really nice. There are again a a few engaging displays here including one of my favorites being the simulator of a tornado or twister.Swipe your hand and you can see how a twister starts.Cool!
Being a chemistry major myself, this section is indeed a teacher's dream of how a chemistry lab should get visual. I imagine how easy and interesting it would be explain chemistry concepts with the exhibits in this gallery. I personally feel though that more displays could be in order to maximize the space in this section.
While adults especially university students might feel that many of the displays are rather too elementary, I am certain that many will still learn a thing or two. The museum is perfect for grade schools and high schoolers and I encourage teachers and schools to bring their students here to reinforce science learning. For parents, I highly suggest you bring your kids here and guide them through the galleries. A visit separate from tours means more time to stay on certain sections to educate your kids without the rush of moving from one section to another. A whole day pass is well worth it. In the case of me and my wife, we stayed for more than three hours including the tour of the exhibit for Da Vinci.
My praises for Bonifacio Art Foundation for putting up this amazing space.We need people like them who advance science in the absence of profit taking. Bless you guys!
