A Day in "The Mind Museum"

Hello Lovelies! I've been busy the past two days! Y'all know that I joined Globe's Blogging Contest, ayt??? #haha...Well, I was lucky enough to be included in the first 20 bloggers who submitted their entries; thus, I won 4 passes to The Mind Museum! Thank you so much Globe! :)

The said museum is located in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Philippines. It presents Five Main Stories and spans the entire range of nature's elements, namely: Atom, Life, Universe, Earth and Technology.

Upon entering the museum, you will be welcomed by a robot.
Meet Aedi!
The Story of the Atom

The Atom Gallery is the gallery with the most number of interactive exhibits. It contains the very elemental forces that are so familiar that we take them for granted – gravity and electromagnetism. It presents the counterintuitive quantum world which resembles nothing in the ordinary, everyday experience, yet serves as the basis for much of the technology we find so common and take for granted – computers, mobile phones, lasers, and many medical technologies.

The Story of Life

The Life Gallery is the gallery which features the defining exhibit of the museum: The Human Brain. The gallery features the exuberance of a living planet in all its forms. It features the various habitats that nurture an astonishing number and kinds of organisms. This gallery also features the inner spaces that inhabit this life in the form of molecules called DNA.

The Story of The Universe

The Universe Gallery showcases humankind’s wondrous fascination with outer space, and includes the mini-planetarium. It features exhibits that shows how all of life, as we know it now, found its atomic beginnings in the stars in space. It will enfold visitors in the fundamental elements and forces that are at play in the universe. It also includes wondrous images from the Hubble Space Telescope as well as a graphic history of humankind’s quest into other parts of the solar system.

The Story of The Earth

The Earth Gallery features the first T-REX exhibit in the country along with other unique exhibits that focus on the earth and nature. Knowing natural history is the way we can educate museum visitors on how long it took the planet to give us what we now inhabit. 

The Earth Gallery also features natural history from 4.6 billion years ago.

The Story of Technology

At 680 sqm, this is the largest of all the galleries, and is the only exhibition space on the second level, overlooking the other four galleries. Its centerpiece, The Human Face of Technology – a 360° screen showing a constantly updated video of stories told by people about their favorite technologies and why they love them.

This gallery presents technology not as a mere tool, gadget, or industrial advancement but as means to flesh out human values, to help us become better humans. Thus, 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.
