Onstage at the Blogapalooza 2013: The Mind Museum
The Mind Museum is a project of the Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. It is a collaboration of science and art which aims to showcase a museum that could show science in a delightfully artistic manner.
The Mind Museum opened in March 2012- a "green" structure in that contains a captivating display and hosts dynamic activities for all ages. Being a Green Structure means that the Mind Museum has a GOLD certification in design and construction from the US Green Building Council.
You can explore its 12, 000 sqm area full of exhilarating activities with 250 hands on, minds on interactive display.
The Mind Museum has 5 Main Galleries:
Atom Gallery- The Strange World of the Very Small
Life Gallery- The Exuberance of Life
Earth Gallery- Nature Across the Breadth of Time
Universe Gallery- Vastness of the Universe
Technology Gallery- How We Live
There are performances conducted by their resident scientists called Mind Movers. There are also “Brain Rain” sessions which are quick yet interactive discussions about science.
The Mind Museum also hosts travelling science exhibitions which allows their guests to experience how different countries try to make science alive in people’s lives.

They had questions for bloggers visiting their booth, I picked one from the fishbowl and was able to give the correct answer (with a little help from the Mind Museum folks) so I got a cute pen. I also asked them if my 3yo McKenzie would appreciate and enjoy the Mind Museum and I think they are able to convince me to visit there soon with my little girl.
