Museo Pambata; Happy Learning Place for Children

My kids and I loves going places to discover as a family. I enjoy observing their look when they discover new things and when they are too curious with their surroundings. This is one of the joys of motherhood that I am very proud of and that I get to witness each of it.

Since my kids are homeschooled, few trips to educational places are always on my list. I always see to it to be able to take them whenever time and budget permits. I have been on the look for places where I can take them and admittedly, some of it is not yet appropriate for their age.

But good thing there was an invite with one of the places I have been wanting to go to which also tickled my curiosity, which is the Museo Pambata (Children;s Museum). Admittedly, when I was in grade school, there were only limited places where we go to especially during our educational tours. This is the very first time that I have been to a museum intended for children, as an adult. Yes.

In the morning, I was able to attend the media event where they showcased different activities in the museum. I knew very well that the kids would enjoy it as much as I did. It was like a playhouse that I ever dreamed of when I was a kid and the only difference is this was reality. In the afternoon, me and my kids had to go back for them to experience what it is to be in a “child’s museum.”

Here are the reasons why paying a visit to the children’s museum is a must:

  • Promotes Pretend Play. There was a section there wherein you can be anyone you would like to be--barber, vendor, pharmacist, baker, fireman and etc. It was a dream for every child to have such pretend play.


  • Promotes Love for Books. I must admit, their library was a love at first sight! They have lots of books to choose from and if only I had the big space in our home, I would transform the kids’ room into that. It was so cozy that I never want to leave the area anymore.
  • Science Explained. Yes, my love for science will always be there. I love how they illustrated everything into almost reality. By the time when I have to make illustrations as to how to explain to the kids what is really happening in our human body and our world, I know the place to visit already.


  • Promotes Philippine Culture. In order for us to appreciate our country, we have to know our Philippine Culture. But you know what? It was my least favorite subject back when I was in school. I never really get to appreciate it not until when I stated traveling the country and understanding each culture. Now I know Philippines is a beautiful country and has a rich culture to boast.
