Museo Pambata

Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.

For that day, we chose not to grow old, as our featured museum is a children’s favorite: Museo Pambata. That was our second time to visit the museum together, as we have already been there a few years ago. We felt like we were kids again when we went back.

Formerly the Museum of Philippine Art, we can already see from the facade that it is a legitimately an American Era Architecture. Inside, you can explore and learn about how the environment works, up to how your body works. It also shows some of our heroes, by which our kids can look up to.

There were installations which were already there ever since. Some were maintained, some weren’t. There was an installation, in which you will have to use a telephone which allows you to listen to a recorded speech of a national hero. Sadly, it was already removed. The human body room was still there, as well as the kiddie market. They now also provide a room for the temporary exhibits.

The museum will and still surely ignite your little kid inside. It is a must, if you haven’t been there, and even if you have. You will feel nostalgic as you remember your childhood days.
