It was the Sunday before school started again after the Christmas and new year break. We were wondering…
“Where to go? What to do?”
Those were the usual questions when thinking of activities for our family.
While I was washing the dishes, The Mind Museum came to mind and good thing hubby scored an online deal for five all-day passes at a discounted price.
After a filling lunch at S&R, we excitedly headed to The Mind Museum and we spied some superheroes outside. I snapped this while waiting for their dad to park the car.
After we were given wrist tags, madness ensued!
Many people were taking photos of the welcoming robot, so we went straight to the exhibit about weather and climate change.
We were brought back to prehistoric times with this big screen.
Now, here’s a real dinosaur (skeleton)! Meeting Stan the T. Rex and looking at giant poop were cool!
This was one of their favorite things to do – digging up more dinosaur fossils.
Another is building molecules.
Here in The Mind Museum, one gets to hold up the Earth in style.
Or meet an astronaut under the twinkling stars.
We got to watch a video in the teaching planetarium about the galaxy we’re in, the same galaxy that’s in us, while reclining and enjoying the voice of Woody from Toy Story. *winks* It’s entitled Passport to the Universe. It was cool and dark, therefore, it’s a place to rest so we could have more energy to roam.
There’s so much to see since there were two floors and lots of exhibits.
Aside from learning about volcanoes…
The kids measured the size of the whale shark’s mouth using themselves.
Aside from seeing what cavemen looked like…
The kids were presented with beliefs people have about achieving a longer life. How?
By eating noodles
By serving others
By discovering the Okinawan “secret”
There were many more exhibits explored that we didn’t take photos of. Like:
- the light bridge
- the musical stairs
- the giant brain
- the periodic table of elements
- the frequencies of sound
- the screen that shows pictures of nature which one can spin to make them move in slow motion or in high speed
- all about fungi
- the phases of the moon
- the mini arcade
- the model of a bridge
- etcetera, etcetera
There was even an outdoor Science-in-the-park with music-making and bubble-making contraptions plus slides, which the kids enjoyed. It was like a Science-themed playground.
I wish we downloaded the Mind Museum app before going, so that we could have a “tour guide” via the QR codes, such as this.
I’m sure my daughter had a hair-raising (literally!) experience at The Mind Museum.
My mind was blown away by this dizzyingly (literally!) beautiful rotating tunnel.
What I loved most was this thoughtful place for mommies and their kids. 🙂
And then, we entered the Superhero maze (which was full of mosquitoes! Yikes!) and we walked around JY Campos Park, where plant species were identified, as we headed to the parking area.
