We were greeted by Aedi the robot =)
We were greeted by two of their resident scientists called MindMovers.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Stan the T.rex. You can find him and learn about fossils at the Earth Gallery.
This was awesome so we all had to take photos with him!
Dino poop, anyone? =)
This cool tube here simulates a tornado.
This is the OmniGlobe, one of the exhibits that has new features. With a live feed, you get a visual update on the current state of the planet - from active volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis to a global weather report from a month ago to the past 24 hours.
We met our ancestors at the Earth Gallery too! =)
You can find this life sized whale shark at the Life Gallery.
Have you ever wondered how your brain works? You can see it when you walk through this giant brain. The exhibit lights up when you coax it to sense, think and feel.
One of my favorite interactive activities is the Van de Graaf Ball. You can find this at the Atom Gallery. It literally made my hair stand up on its end! Super cool and not scary at all!
In this exhibit, the atom is given massive limelight with a chocolate bar sculpture that's broken down to show its component structures - from molecules, to atoms, to quarks.
My friends' favorite naman is the Shadow Box. It takes photos of your shadows on the wall!! We tried taking photos of it using our cameras pero hindi umumbra. I have yet to discover the technique for it. It's so cool, I swear!
We saw how the moon changes its phases at the Universe Gallery. This was the closest we can get to the moon.
It's also in the Universe Gallery where you can find The Space Shell, with its more enhanced, more comfortable planetarium experience. Your trip to The Mind Museum will not be complete if you will not experience The Space Shell which now allows you to comfortably lounge while gazing into the majestic night sky or watching films of galactic proportions.
The last stop that we did was the Technology Gallery at the second floor. You can see here the greatest engineering feat in the history of the Philippines, the Malampaya Natural Gas Project. You can also see the solar-powered bugs and the technology behind Beauty Symmetry that puts balance into cosmetics, architecture and art. We also met Mimo, their smart, obstacle avoiding robot.
If you get hungry, they now have Kyle's Lab at The Mind Cafe that serves snacks and drinks. It serves delicious, science-themed snacks and is run by Junior MasterChef Pinoy Edition's Grand Prize Winner Kyle Imao.
Obvious ba my friends had a great time =)
How cool is this first ever automobile in the Philippines?! =)
Due to our excitement, we weren't able to watch the MindMovers do their thing at the Mind Moving Studios. The MindMovers here are available to demonstrate mind-blowing, scientific experiments live. Kids can help out in their experiments as well!!
After going around inside the museum, we went outside to check out the Science-in-the-Park.
All in all, we had a great time at The Mind Museum. Ang bongga lang. Even at my age, I was reminded of the stuff I learned in school and I was actually able to learn more =) I also love that they have these interactive activities inside. It's a fun way to learn science and I'm sure you and your kids will enjoy it too!
Wait, there's more!
This summer, you can experience all that at The Mind Museum with more of your friends. For every purchase of five museum tickets, you can get one additional ticket for free!!
Check out The Mind Museum now! =)
