Nothing is new except that the musuem are now airconditioned and now a place for rent as your party venue. Entrance fee is Php 250/ head(even kids 2years old and above should pay the same amount) only residents of Manila can avail the 50% off, which i find VERY absurd. I think all children(regardless of age) should benefit the same... More

I went when i was still single. I revisited the place with my 2 year old daughter. While she still does not appreciate all the features of the museum, she was able to play a bit and tried some of the local instruments, browsed through books, etc. They have added new sections - the herb garden, the paddy field area,...

We took my son to the museum to change the scene for him. A three year old will get tired of the same parks and malls after a few days of seeing the same thing over and over. He enjoyed it as we all enjoyed it. The museum felt old and run down, smelled old and I feel that many... More

Back in school year 2012-2013, I was asked to join the group of parent volunteers to help accompany my daughter's class of grade 2s. Our itinerary was Manila Ocean Park in the morning then Museo Pambata in the afternoon. Both places were suitable for grade 2 pupils which were aged 6-8 year old. The only problem was the facilitator which... More

You are never too young or old to have fun! I went to Museo Pambata, literally translates as Museum for kids, with several children. It was so fun seeing them enjoy and laughed all day. The museum was improved since I went there when I was little. The section of roleplaying was still there. I was playing there! The replica... More

Accessible by public transport getting to Museu Pambata is not difficult. Nice, educational, and interactive exhibits would definitely make children stay longer and have fun. Entrance fee is minimal and food and drinks are available. Additional info is the Museu also caters to event celebrations like birthday party for the kids. You can choose from the variety of packages offer.... More

There are a lot of interactive and informative displays that would make kids and kids-at-heart very happy. Some of the displays are bit worn-out but they are still in working condition. The lavatories are clean and well-maintained.
