Museums have always been a favorite of mine. Just recently, my daughter and I visited the Philippine National Museum to celebrate the national museums month with friends. I love looking at the exhibits but I wished there were more interactive displays.
Enter The Mind museum at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Opened in the March 2012, this is the first world-class museum here in the country built by Filipinos for Filipinos. It aims to help guests understand the role that science plays in our past (Nature Gallery), present, and the future (Universe Gallery) through interactive exhibits.
For me, just seeing the building that houses the museum would be mind blowing enough. The futuristic design conceptualized by Lor Calma & Partners inspires awe. It’s unlike anything I have ever seen before and it reminds me of the StarFleet Academy in Star Trek.
But if I have to choose, I would say that I am looking forward to seeing the Mind Movers, the resident scientists of the museum. I grew up reading book after book and I never had a chance to do science experiments in the schools I attended. But I have always been fascinated with simple science experiments so I am thrilled to see what the Mind Movers are going to demonstrate. I’m also excited for my daughter because I am sure she’ll learn a ton stuff that she can use in school and impress her classmates with. (FYI: It’s disappointing that my daughter’s school is having their field trip at Enchanted Kingdom instead of an educational institution like the Mind Museum)
And I am also looking forward to the Renaissance Fair happening this November 23-24. I was informed by Lisa at their Blogapalooza booth that a wonderful surprise awaits people participating in the fair on Sunday. Frankly, the opportunity to don a costume and participate in activities during the Renaissance Fair makes me giddy like a school girl (geek out moment). I just love history and I even started a blog on historical fiction so I can share period movies, TV shows and literature that I love. I just hope I can find the perfect costume!
