Museo Pambata

Museo Pambata pleasantly surprised me when we paid a visit. Not only was it very educational for the kids, but also very entertaining and fun.... for young kids, and the young at heart!

History can never be more fun than this. These are found in the Maynila Noon/Old Manila room. Other stuffs to do here are ride the model tranvia, board a Spanish Galleon or step into a miniature cathedral.

These are found in the Bata sa Mundo/Children in the Global Village room. Dolls of children from different parts of the world are seen wearing their national costumes along with other miniatures.

These are found in the Katawan Ko/My Body Works room. Watch your kids have fun in here as they explore and actually step into the wonderful world of the human anatomy.

Your kids will have enjoy these huge scale models of different body parts that emit their body sound when pressed! I did!

For me, this room, the Tuklas/Science Through Discovery room, is one of the most enjoyable ! There is just so much to explore and do in here similar to science experiments.

One favorite area in the museum that was my instant favorite is this corridor lined by artworks hung on both walls created by gifted young Filipino artists.

There is even so much more to explore in the museo. I wish I could share them all.... The Marketplace.... The Craft Room.... The Career Options.... The Environment.... all designed and layed out to be interesting for the kids and kids alike.
