The Mind Museum + the New DINO PLAY!

2:37:00 AM

On June 29, 2016, The Mind Museum has launched their latest traveling exhibition called Dino Play: Explore the Mind-blowing World of Dinosaurs!


For their love of these huge creatures and birds, able to take my kids earlier and their experience was wonderful! My son and daughter are obsessed with animals, dinosaurs are an ultimate fantasy for both including its history thus they had a very nice time; my son made a game plan for the day prior to our visit and they enjoyed all four nests...

To satisfy your curiosity, come and explore the world of dinosaurs!


  This original vintage Sarao jeep will immediately welcome you to the exhibit. The children were fascinated as if they are on a hunt. Also at the entrance is a fine sculpture of a T-rex in giant eggs that surely kids can wriggle to take their first exhibit photo. 


Guests will understand what dinosaurs actually are and how are they related to the more familiar reptiles. Then you will see or follow massive dino footprints all over the place to get the impressions left when dinosaurs used to roam the earth. 

 Dino Play is divided into four nests, beginning with (1) DINO DIG

Paleontologists or scientists who study dinos and ancient biology through fossils works on the field and dust off rocks. Kids use their Paleontologist Field Kits to reveal hidden creatures in the excavation sites.


Investigating fossils will lead them further into the (2) DINO LAB

In this nest, our little scientists will examine actual fossil remains.
My kids saw dinosaur bones, petrified wood, ancient shelled creatures called ammonites and teased each other on dino poop that turned to stone. 

Fun doesn't end there! My 9-yo boy and 5-yo girl enjoyed (3) DINO FUN area mostly...

While driving to the exhibit, my son asked if they can make their own fossils and glad there was this area; If your children will ask same, they could!

 Here's how you can make fossils in a matter of seconds:

The kinetic sand will act as a sediment. By pressing a dino toy, it can form a mold. Kids can also pour sand in dino molds provided, details will be visible on the surface then it will be a cast! 

The Dino Family Tree is also nice where kids can learn about a day in the life of a dinosaur. 


... and the Dino Lookout Tower tops their list! They even had a roleplay checking the vicinity for some hiding rogue dinosaurs...



Think this is also the nicest for me! The area is perfect for kids height and some ultrasonic mosquito devices are in placed. 

The last activity area is the (4) DINO DEN which is recommended for kids 2 years of age until they're 8! They can even use provided costumes and stomp around in a forest land with their siblings and friends. 


Removing of footwear is suggested, also for kids to put on slippers and leave their own T-rex or Velociraptor footprints. 



Adult Guides are also provided for parents and teachers that can be found on each nests to enhance children or students' learning experience. 

The outside stretch also has interactive learning displays. 


The Mind Museum's traveling exhibit Dino Play will only be up until September 30, 2016. The display aims to travel to cities and provinces around the country as past of The Mind Museum's mission to bring science closer to the general public.

  8. My girls enjoyed the kinetic sand a lot. They have been asking me to buy them a box of those from Toy Kingdom. The Dino Play have lots of them and I'm sure kids will be having a grand time playing with the sands aside from digging the dinosaur bones.

  21. This looks like so much fun. I love visiting museums with a dinosaur exhibition. We've been in a lot of natural history museums but there are two that are on top of the list when it comes to dinosaurs. The first one is The Natural History Museum in Brussels, but on top of the list is The Natural History Museum in London.

  22. What a great idea to have this. I'd love to bring my son here. He loves dinosaurs. I remember Mind Museum had a Da Vinci exhibit and it was so worth going.
