The Story of Science in the Philippines

The galleries, corridors and parks of The Mind Museum

The Story of the Atom: The Strange World of the Very Small


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 like gravity and electromagnetism. It also presents the counterintuitive quantum world that resembles nothing from everyday experience, yet serves as the basis for much of the technology of today.

The Story of the Earth: Nature Across the Breadth of Time


The Earth Gallery features the first permanent T-Rex exhibit in the country along with other unique exhibits that focus on forces at work in shaping and reshaping the Earth. 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 Story of Life: The Exuberance of Life


The Life 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: Its Beginning and Majesty


The Universe Gallery showcases humankind’s wondrous fascination with outer space. It features exhibits that show how all of life, as we know it now, found its atomic beginnings in the stars in space. It enfolds visitors in the fundamental elements and forces at play in the universe. The Universe Gallery includes a mini, teaching planetarium that brings guests closer to the wonders of the universe.

The Story of Technology: The Showcase of Human Ingenuity

The Technology Gallery is the largest of all the galleries. It is the only exhibition space on the second level, overlooking the other four galleries. 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.

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.
Corridors
Each of the galleries are connected by crucial links dubbed as Nature’s Webways. These feature immersive exhibits that help visitors make the transition in between the intricately woven stories of the galleries.

Lightbridge

This innovative bridge connecting the Universe and Atom Galleries displays  the entire electromagnetic spectrum – a key concept in understanding the connection between space and time in the smallest (atom) and biggest  (universe) of things.

Tunnelcraft

Connecting the Universe Gallery and the Earth Gallery, this rotating tunnel features imagery from the Hubble telescope to simulate travel between outer space and Earth.

Inner-Space Track


A corridor featuring projections of unzipping DNA connects the Atom and Life Galleries to understand that animated life is made up of particles.
Parks

Science-in-the Park: Nature's Artful Play


This is a thousand-square meter outdoor source of science fascination. Visitors learn science by rediscovering anew, through play, the wonder of nature’s elements: sunlight, wind, water and greenery. The park consists of four main play pockets: Water, Math, Music, and Living.
