Get Mind Blown While Exploring the Mind Museum


Scientists and Inventors discovered and created many things because of their curiosity. Like Galileo Galilee’s Telescope where he used it to observe planets like Venus and Jupiter, Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone that is widely used today as one of our tools for communication, or Isaac Newton’s law of motion. We won’t be able to develop without their breakthrough. Science is a now necessity in this time of day.



Non-profit project by the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc., The Mind Museum is dedicated to providing an amazing educational experience, to see science and technology come alive. The museum is the first science museum in the Philippines with over 250 hands-on, minds-on interactive exhibits at JY Campos Park in Bonifacio Global City.


The Mind Museum contains 5 galleries: 

  • Atom
  • Life
  • Earth
  • Universe
  • Technology


THE ATOM GALLERY will make you appreciate what the tiniest particle can do to our surrounding, exhibiting pieces that would let you understand how counter-intuitive quantum serves as the basis of most of our technology today. Atom Gallery also has the most interactive exhibits.


 THE LIFE GALLERY features life itself on Earth. This gallery is filled with different kinds of habitats and an impressive number and variety of organisms that thrive our planet. This gallery also helps us to understand how life surrounds and inhabits us – from microbes to large animals like the life-size ‘butanding’ or whale shark, they have displayed in the gallery.


THE EARTH GALLERY focuses on the forces that shaped and re-shaped our planet, Earth. It also tells the evolutionary history of life on our planet. It contains a 3D animated film made by an all-Filipino crew that features 4.6 billion years of the planet’s natural history and evolution in 12 minutes. Don’t forget the gallery has Stan, its own and first permanent T-Rex in the country.


THE UNIVERSE GALLERY humankind has long been fascinated about life outside Earth. Universe gallery features the strange vastness of outer space and shows the fundamental elements at play in the cosmos. The gallery also contains a unique planetarium which can make you feel as if you were lying down on a bed star-gazing.


THE TECHNOLOGY GALLERY is located above all four galleries and it’s also the largest among all. The gallery is divided into five major themes with each theme occupying a Node. The themes of the Nodes are: How We Live, Who We Are, How We Know, How Things Work, and Here to There. This gallery is also a representation of how humans, with the tools we invent and innovate, are able to express our ingenuity and how technology helps us to become better humans.


BTW When you enter the museum you’ll first be greeted by a robot named Aedi (Idea spelled backward).

Now after you’re done exploring inside, stop by at their nature exhibition, Science-in-the-Park outside the museum and witness the magical beauty of nature.


The Mind Museum is open every Tuesdays and Sundays from 9 am to 6 pm. Ticket varies depending on what kind you will avail. An All-day Pass cost Php750 for both Adult and Child, this will allow you to go around and interact with exhibits from 9 am to 6 pm. A cheaper option is when you avail their 3-hour visit Time slots, which costs Php625 for an Adult and Php475 for a child, do note that this pass will only allow you to roam the museum for 3 hours. Discounts are available as long as you bring a valid ID with you.


If you’re thirsty for discovery and rediscovery, the Mind Museum is the place to go, filled with a wide variety and exciting educational activities for both the young and young at heart.
