Visit Museo Pambata
My family have gone to a few events and activities this summer. We have been thinking of going to the Museo Pambata (Children’s Museum) for some time now although I have never visited the museum.
Have you ever visited Museo Pambata with your children?
My son and I visited the museum for the first time this month. We planned our visit for International Museum Day which meant that we entered the Museo Pambata for FREE! On regular days, the admission fee is 250 Pesos for 2 years old and up. (Read on and get a discount on the admission fee for your family!)
Finding Museo Pambata is easy, it’s along Roxas Boulevard right beside the US Embassy, near Kilometer Zero. You won’t even need your GPS to find it! There are parking spaces at the museum if you’re riding a car. If you are riding a train or jeep, get off at UN Avenue and walk to Roxas Boulevard.
First thing your kids will see is the playground. With. A. Helicopter. So you have to decide now, if you’ll let them play before or after entering the museum. They will surely want to play right now! While playground looks very loved and used, most of it is still in safe and working condition. Except for the cockpit, which you may have to remind your kids to be really careful because there are sharp edges that could cut them.
Museo Pambata Exhibits
My son couldn’t wait to enter the Old Manila exhibit because he wanted to ride the Spanish galleon and be a pirate. Unfortunately, climbing was not allowed so he just rang the bell for his mateys.
Don’t miss letting your children smell the spices at the side of the ship!
We spent some time having fun at this exhibit.
My son said he was scared of the big lady’s face at the My Body exhibit so I had to crawl inside the mouth with him. This exhibit had lots of interactive displays for the kids. There is even a rock climbing wall.
The kids’ favorite at this exhibit is this:
It’s because of the fart sounds when you press it. Hehe
The Marketplace exhibit was great because there were so many products to shop!
But there was a large and loud firetruck at the end, and my son couldn’t wait to be a fireman!
He still needs to grow into it.
There are so many things your kids could also explore at the other exhibits!
What is great with Museo Pambata is that there are lots of interactive activities for children. Although some items are in need of repair, they did not diminish the experience for us.
Don’t wait for the school field trip. If you want your children to have fun while learning, bring them to the Museo Pambata on your next family day out!
