About The Mind Museum
Located in Bonifacio Global City Taguig, The Mind Museum is an award-winning science museum in the Philippines. The museum aims to provide an extraordinary educational experience for all its visitors through its interactive exhibits across five main galleries, planetarium shows, 3D films, live science demos, special exhibitions and monthly events.
Over half a million people have come away inspired after visiting The Mind Museum since its launch in 2012. Many of them are Filipino families and students, both from private and public schools, all of which have witnessed science and nature roaming, talking, exploding, and flying, be it thru the exhibits, or the museum’s educational programs. The Mind Museum, a non-profit organization of the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc., takes pride in being a museum designed by Filipinos for Filipinos, as it reaches out to the world to contribute to the public understanding of science.
Gaining International Recognition
The world has reached out to The Mind Museum too, setting it apart from other learning destinations, with the accolades garnered within its two years of existence. For one thing, the museum has earned a GOLD LEED certification from the US Green Building Council for being a paragon of modern, environmentally-sustainable architecture.
The Mind Museum’s most recent honor is an award dubbed as the “Oscars” of the themed entertainment industry around the world. The THEA Award given by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) for this year’s “Outstanding Achievement,” cites that the museum “expands science into a fully experiential world,” and that “the thematic thread and artistic treatments throughout is what makes this project extraordinary by any standards”. Awardees include the Disney Parks, Cirque du Soleil and Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay. This is a proud moment for the Philippines for having the first science museum in Asia to receive such recognition in the entire 20-year history of the TEA.
It is also an institutional partner of the World Science Festival and the California Academy of Sciences. To strengthen its commitment to lifelong science learning, The Mind Museum is a member of the Association of Science – Technology Centers (ASTC) and Asia Pacific Network of Science & Technology Centers (ASPAC).
The Museum has also hosted fantastic and beautiful travelling exhibitions from around the world like Da Vinci–The Genius in 2013, and Biorhythm from Ireland in 2012. In 2015, The Museum also launched exciting traveling exhibitions to bring science closer to more Filipinos:A Glass of the Sea: An Exhibition on the Coral Triangle and Forever Lab: Will You Still Love Me at 150?
From June to September 2016, The Mind Museum invites young dinosaur fans to explore the mind-blowing world of dinosaurs at its newest exhibition, Dino Play. The traveling exhibition features hands-on activities where kids get to unearth fossils, examine real dino fossils, climb a lookout tower in search of hidden dinosaurs, and so much more!
