The chronicles of odd adventures.

Museums are one of the great holders of history and knowledge about the world and the universe circumscribing us. It is the house of detailed timeline about how the world and its inhabitants developed into what they are today; let’s say a very big facebook of the universe. 

One Tuesday morning, I went with my sister, my nephew and her friends to The Mind Museum located in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City. I was pretty excited, first because it is located in BGC and second, I heard that its architecture was very modern and dazzling. 

The Mind Museum is divided into different areas, pertaining to the important aspects of the universe where some places are classified as Earth, Space, Atoms, etc.

The museum is really intimidating. It caught my attention, definitely because of the layouts, designs and its overall design. This is the museum where art, architecture and modern technology are synthesized.

It is one of the museums in the country where it is very interactive, since all the information and visuals are interacted with models, sounds, touch screen monitors. There were also parts where you, the visitor, will get the chance to have hands-on science experiment (like with the static electricity which will make your hair stand, leaving your shadows behind the wall, create bubbles, etc.), have mind games, and also express what you think of the museum through a video-computer machine.

Before leaving the museum, there was another area just outside the museum (but still a part of the amenities of The Mind Museum) which is called The Science Park (I forgot the actual name, but it sounds something like this). It is an intellectual playground where you just don’t play, you still learn something from science. Just like an ordinary playground, there are some slides here, but the slides are formed differently, and one slide is formed like a leaf, I think, to give a sense of sliding differently. The most attracting facility in this park is the bubble creator (I just made this naming for the facility). Basically, you pull the string quickly and you are inside the bubble. There’s another one where you just blow or stroke the bubble stick to create bubbles.
