A couple of weeks ago, we went to the Mind Museum. Finally. We were given All-Day Passes by Tara from Sunlife of Canada, one of the museum’s sponsors.
We all had a great time – grandparents, us and the kids. The exhibits were very well-curated. The architecture was impressive (I do have some minor observations regarding safety). It’s a great thing to have in our city. I think every family should get a chance to experience the Mind Museum.
Congratulations to the curators and designers of the Mind Museum. And yay to the private companies who sponsored this.
Here’s the entrance to the tunnel. If I may suggest to Ed Calma, please put safety handrails for kids and elderly. I realize it may ruin the design. But I’m all for safety. My mom had a difficult time with these steps.
I loved this one. A revolving globe that can be programmed to show different phenomena – like patterns of past earthquakes, tsunamis, climate change, volcanic erruptions. It is so freaky. Especially since we’re right in the middle of all the action. Yikes.
This section was bout outer space. We watched a film in this dome-like structure. There were pillows on the floor. It was comfortable but just be careful because your head is, in effect, in front and almost touching someone else’s shoes, and we’re talking soles. The movie was very good but it scared Stella (it was age-inappropriate).
This playground rocks! Whoever designed this should get an award. And please give me some pointers because I’m supposed to be supervising the design of our village park. And playgrounds are very very important in my life… and in many others’, I hope.
