I did not really know what to expect from a children's museum but I was utterly surprised by the things they have put up. There were seven themed rooms in the museum -- Kalikasan (Mother Nature), Old Manila, Career Options (featured author and illustrator of children's books), I love my Planet Earth, My Body Works, Pamilihang Bayan (neighborhood shops), and...

We went to the Museo Pambata because of the videos I saw on the internet. What I found was many items in disrepair, not working, or missing! And before you plan your trip, understand how things work here -- at noon, they shut down and you must leave. They allow you to come re-enter after the HOUR they are closed,... More

Museo Pambata is better than average but not very good so I went with the lower of the 2 options. Some of the attractions are worn and could use touch up while others (particularly some of the phones did not work). However for an 18 month old, it was fun and he couldn't tell the difference. The museum does a... More

The Little Lit Fest was held here last May 30-31, 2013. The resource speakers from the book publishing industry focused on children's books. The place was renovated and there were some rooms that were added from their various donors. The museum is actually divided into different sections having a theme such as Old Manila, Environment, Career Options, Library, Herbal Garden,... More

In 2004, I brought my kids to Museo Pambata and there were interactive displays in the upper floor. Kids can do wall climbing, basketball, etc. in the Sports Room. In another room, there were Science-experiment-type of "displays". Children would get to understand how science plays a part in our lives. For example, when you shake an ordinary reconfigured coke bottle... More

Perfect introduction to museum visits for kids. Interactive facilities are fun and educational. While this is usually on school field trips, better to see this place with your own family. It gives the adults a new perspective on history and learning as well.

I attended my god daughter's bday yesterday at Museo Pambata. Aside from the payment for the rent of the hall, there's a free tour of the museum. I actually like the museum as it fascinates the kid in me. However, i noticed that the museum itself needs more care from the management. Some items arent working properly and need replacement...

One would think that being adults, we'll surely get bored inside a kid's museum but what the heck, don't know if i should get embarrased in admitting that we were still amazed at the interactive stuff we've witnessed inside. And really, our only regret was not charging our cameras beforehand thereby giving us no choice but to take pixelated pics... More

This is the place my grandchildren really liked, even adults would really enjoy, because of their hands on experience, need I say more? They wanted to return even if you bring them there everyday. It is truly informative, educational, challenging, amusing, enjoyable experience for them. They chose this more than Fort Santiago and Luneta Park, who they also visited for... More
