Get the Mind Museum All Day Pass so you wont end up inside a closing museum like us – June 2013Tuesday, August 06, 2013
* A long post ahead!
My brain was in shock and denial with what was happening. When it finally sunk in, Danix and I walked away from the museum feeling like idiots and laughing at our misfortune.
Before Heading to the Mind Museum
Let’s rewind a bit. How did this ridiculous story come about? Well we had lunch first at Recovery Food. Then, I can tell you the rest in photos!
Danix and I love to take our time reading the materials and exploring the displays.
You see The 10 Most Beautiful Experiments in Science when you enter. This is one of the sections that made me feel silly because some of the occurrences are part of our daily lives that it feels normal. However if you ask me to explain the phenomenon to you, I won’t be able to do so.
It’s a bit sad to see the small Filipino section of the Museum since there are only a few Filipinos in the field. However I liked that there was a portion showcasing the work and contribution of our countrymen in the field.
It is important for everyone to pass by the Climate Change exhibit since it presents scientific concepts in weather and how it has affected our country with reference to disasters that plagued us. It is alarming to see that out of the 10 major disasters, most of them happening in the last 10 years.
The more technical displays made us feel like ninnies. Hahaha We are not stupid but these displays were things we remember learning in school but completely forgot.
I had a lot of fun at the section with the Atom because of the interactive displays.
You will see several interpretations of the Table of Elements. This one features everyday items, isn’t that awesome?
Like a moth to a flame, a dome of color attracts me right away. I enter the dome of molecules where you are encouraged to make compounds.
I pick the easiest formula, methane (in fart). It also gives us a lot of laughs. TA-DAAAA!
I love the expression on Danix’s face.
Being inquisitive by nature, I enjoyed my time in the brain chamber. You’ll find different buttons on the floor you can step on explaining the various portions of the human brain. Once you step on it, that part of the brain lights up.
You will see how the volcano rumbles and eventually erupts.
I cant walk in his shoes, este paw?
I gravitated towards the exhibits about us humans, our body and our nature.
Another favorite section, spaaaccceee!!!
You get to walk through the Universe to Earth corridor while the universe rotates around you. It feels like the earth is moving but it actually isn’t. I got a tad dizzy here.
Perfect photo op area.
Make sure to catch the film viewing in the space section, it was my first time to experience something like this. I think if some of the science videos we watched in class were presented this way, I would be more interested in it.
Another colorful section – the Lightbridge.
Also know as the area where we were when the museum closed.
So there, we didn’t even make it to the second floor. Moral lesson of the story? If you love taking your time and exploring like us, GET THE WHOLE DAY PASS AND START EARLY. We did get the pass at a discount but we didn’t notice that the museum closes at 6 PM on a Sunday. We thought it closed at 8 PM.Kidding aside, I cant compare the Mind Museum to other science museums in the world because I’ve never been to any of them. I appreciate that we have an interactive and kid friendly science museum in the country. I think that a lot of students will benefit from visiting the museum as it presents a lot of concepts in a conversational manner. The interactive elements of the museum make science more fun.
Regular tickets cost P600 for adults, P450 for private school students and P150 for teachers and public school students. These tickets are for THREE HOUR TIME SLOTS only and you need to secure a specific spot. The Mind Museum recommends purchasing your tickets beforehand to get the time slot you want. The All Day Pass cost P750 and does not have a time limit.
I hope you do not suffer the same misfortune we did and learned from our story. Haha
