About the Museum
The Mind Museum is a science museum in Manila, Philippines that opened in 2012. It is located in Bonifacio Global City, a business district of the city. It has five main galleries occupying a 4,900 square metres exhibit area spanning two floors. Each has its own theme including atom, life, earth, universe and technology. They are linked by "Nature’s Webways". The museum was well received when it opened and won the THEA Award for Outstanding Achievement for the Science Museum category.
The museum was designed by architect Ed Calma, from Lor Calma & Partners. The design of the structure was inspired from cellular structure and growth and had a solar reflective exterior, natural wind ventilation and rainwater flow drainage.
