The Mind Museum in Taguig City, which opened in 2012, is a non-profit educational project of the Bonifacio Art Foundation. With 5,000 square meters of floor space, it is the first science museum in the Philippines that we can be proud of. Its aim is to promote public understanding and appreciation of science—in a decidedly fun and interactive way. Especially commendable is the foundation's desire that the museum's wonders be experienced by public school children. (For those who are not aware of it, public education in the Philippines is terrible.) Ticket prices for public school students are a fraction of regular ticket prices, but since this special rate is still too high for most of them, the foundation has a special donation portal for people to sponsor the visit of public school students.
