Experiencing the Mind Museum

Children with disabilities from different SPED Schools and PWD organizations attended the Mind Museum Tour, courtesy of Children Hour and Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines, on Sunday, 18 August 2013.

It was an educational field trip, not only for the kids; but for the family members as well. Braving the rains of typhoon Maring, the kids forgot all about the weather once inside the Museum as they were able to “transport” themselves to different time and age. The Autism Society Philippines, led by its Program Coordinator Raphael Torralba, was represented by ASP Diliman Chapter, Marikina Chapter, Hopewell Integrated School, Independent Living Learning Center, Beatea Mariae Academy, Blessed Child Integrated School and ASP regular members.

The Mind Museum is dedicated to provide an extraordinary educational experience that promotes and inspires public understanding of science. It was opened to the public last March 2012, five years after its planning started in 2007. It was initiated by the Bonifacio Art Foundation Inc, a non-stock and non-profit organization supported by property owners in Bonifacio Global City.
