We live in Manila and whenever we need some playtime that’s super sulit, our go to place is the Museo Pambata (Children’s museum) in Roxas Boulevard. The Museo Pambata is the Philippine’s first children’s interactive museum that was established in 1993. The museum aims to strengthen the knowledge, values and cultural identity of Filipino children through innovative learning experiences, interactive exhibits, and advocacy programs as stated in their website.
Enzo and I are a frequent visitor of the museum and we experience something unique every time we visit them. In our latest visit during the International Museum Day, we got to try the new exhibit of Discover DIWATA-1.
DIWATA-1 is the Philippine’s first microsatellite, whose primary objective is to serve as our eye in the sky. It was released into space for scientific Earth observation and has since captured images of the Philippines and other parts of the world. Museo Pambata has created an interactive exhibit were children can pretend to be astronauts inside the spacecraft and scientists who invented DIWATA-I. It was a dream come true for Enzo to wear an astronaut jumper and take a photo with a spacecraft.
There are other exhibits you can visit at Museo Pambata like Palengke, Galleon, Library, Fire Truck, Under the Sea, and many more. Super saya at suit na sulit ang araw sa Museo Pambata at maraming talaga pwede magawa at matutunan ang mga bata!
So if you are looking for a place to spend family time, choose Museo Pambata, kids and kids at heart would definitely enjoy the stay. There’s so much to learn and all ages can be kids again. Isn’t it fun to be kids again with our kids and the entire family?
