The Mind Museum is an educational facility aimed at fostering the public understanding of science. It is located on a 1.2 hectare lot in the J. Y. Campos Park in Bonifacio Global City, a fast-rising central business district in Makati City, Philippines. The museum opened in March 2012.
The space-age design of The Mind Museum is the brainchild of a team of architects from Lor Calma & Partners, led by renowned architect Ed Calma. The inspiration behind the building’s futuristic, yet organic look was based on cell growth and molecular structures.
The Mind Museum is a learning venue where you can satisfy your thirst for science discovery. Whether it is by taking a peak behind the scenes through their BLOG, by joining MindBurst weekends or educational programs, or by visiting travelling exhibits, The Mind Museum is sure to inspire and provoke you to continue exploring and asking questions.
The Mind Museum concept is uniquely Filipino. Their exhibition takes off from a narrative that presents science in over 250 interactive exhibits through five interconnected stories. The exhibition spans nature in scale, from the smallest thing in nature to the largest and everything in between: Atom, Earth, Life, Universe, and Technology.
Almost all the exhibits in The Mind Museum are originally designed by Filipino artists and fabricators who worked closely with scientists here and abroad to execute science principles or facts clearly and beautifully.
The Mind Museum is a project of the non-profit Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. It is dedicated to providing an extraordinary educational experience that inspires the public understanding of science.
The Mind Museum is a P1 billion project completed purely from private donations. Science is alive because of the overwhelming support and unwavering belief of thier founding donors. The museum would not be open today if not for them. The Mind Museum remains grateful for their support of science literacy in the Philippines.

The Mind Museum inspires curiosity, exploration and understanding. Nothing is more rewarding than understanding things for yourself in a setting where you are with equally curious minds. There is no one way to begin understanding. So enjoy exploring on your own at your own pace across the galleries.
The Mind Movers, their resident scientists, will further enrich your exploration with fun science shows, experiments and conversations that happen at least twice every time slot in an announced spot in the museum. During this time, you can take part in the experiments and ask questions about the topic they discussed or about the exhibits in the museum. They are also there to move your minds with more questions and help you understand how nature and science works. They shall help you start your adventure of learning how to think the way scientists do when they study nature.
I would like to thank The Mind Museum and Ms. Trixie Mary S. Tacardon, Marketing Manager of Mind Museum, for being a sponsor in my 12 Angels of Christmas project. <3
Up next, our day at The Mind Museum! :)
