The Mind Museum in Taguig City

We finally took the kids to The Mind Museum last Dec. 9, 2012. We figured it’s been open for a while now so there shouldn’t be too many people. It was a Sunday too so we thought there should be no ongoing school trips and such.

The Mind Museum BGCWe got our tickets and proceeded to go to the hall after the entrance.

The Mind Museum BGCA girl robot named Aedi is there to give a brief introduction.

A guide from The Mind Museum briefed us for a few minutes before leaving us to our own devices. You are given three hours to explore the museum and it’s actually more than enough. You can choose to go at 9am, 12nn, or 3pm. There’s a 6pm slot during weekends. It’s strictly via schedule, you book your tickets online at

I think we spent about a couple of hours total at The Mind Museum. Contrary to what I thought, there were still buses of schoolchildren on a field trip even if it was a Sunday. Having been to similar establishments abroad, my kids were still amused but not awed. Hubby remarked that the quality of the structure itself and the exhibits are quite excellent. If you’re looking for a place to go with the kids during Christmas vacation, this could be a good option. What I’ve shown here is really just a fraction of what’s inside The Mind Museum so I highly recommend going at least once to check it out for yourself.

Tickets cost P600 for adults and P400 for private school students up to college age (just present your school ID). Teachers and public school students can get in for P150.
