Why Museo Pambata is special ?
Museo Pambata is the Philippines first and only hands on discovery museum for children. It houses eight theme rooms, Old Manila, Kalikasan, Global Village, BodyWorks, Pamilihang Bayan, Arts and Crafts Room, Career Options Room and the Science thru Discovery Room. Kids from 5 to 95 will definitely have a blast exploring this wonderful place for the whole family.
The Museo Pambata is a children's interactive museum.

It envisions itself as a discovery museum and resource center promoting Filipino global culture, children's advocacy programs, and creative educational programs with linkages to global communities. The museum also has regular programs and events for various sectors.
