It was my pleasure to be one of the first to experience the exhibit Space Adventure: Journey to the Wonders of the Universe at The Mind Museum, my 2 nephews enjoyed the launch and activities. They learned more about space at a young age and I would encourage more of my friends especially with kids and family to visit.
Whatever drives your curiosity about outer space, there is an adventure waiting for you at The Mind Museum ’s upcoming traveling exhibition, Space Adventure: Journey to the Wonders of the Universe!

Everyone is fascinated by outer space. When it comes to the wonders of the universe, every one of us is a child looking up and marveling at what is out there just like what I had observed with my nephews they were so amused with all the different planets and activities which they had enjoyed.
It is an exhibition conceived and created by The Mind Museum, with the support of exhibit partners:
- Department of Science and Technology (DOST)
- and special thanks to Celestron
- Urban Greens
- Daegu National Science Museum
Space Adventure invites kids from 2 to 102 to embark on an adventure into the wonders of the universe. The interactive exhibits and play areas of Space Adventure will engage the imagination and curiosity of toddlers and young kids. Meanwhile, K-12 students will find their space science lessons in the new DepEd curriculum come alive through the exhibits!

Enter the different geodesic domes, one of which houses augmented reality exhibits about outer space. Guests will also get to step into the Teleporter, a booth with mirrors that gives the guests an illusion of floating in space.
In Explore Outer Space, they will play pretend to launch rocket balls to Mars in Mission to Mars. Meanwhile in the Mars Space Station,they will learn about the challenges of living on Mars and some of the ideas scientists have of overcoming those challenges to help future astronauts survive and work in another world. Young kids can also play around with basic shapes and colors while learning about rockets in Rocket Shapes and Launch Pad Play Area.
To Discover Our Solar System, guests will learn about our neighborhood in space. By interacting and playing with the exhibits in this area, kids will learn why Pluto is no longer called a planet, the difference between a meteor, meteorite, and meteoroid, why the Moon has phases, and many more. They will even get to hop on different planets and see what their weight is on Jupiter or Neptune!
There is something out there in space for everybody, and there is something in Space Adventure for everyone interested in space. Scattered throughout Space Adventure are play areas and activity tables where even the youngest kids and their adult companions can bond and go on a space adventure together. There are also many exhibits designed to help K-12 students appreciate and understand their classroom lessons more.
Educator’s Guides and Activity Sheets are available to enhance the experience and learning of young kids and students. The guides are also suitable for parents and adults who want the experience to be a bonding moment with their kids.
Space Adventure combines the playfulness and awesomeness factor of The Mind Museum ’s other space-related offerings such as Astro Camp, a camping activity under the stars, and educational programs such as Stargazing 101, Blast-Off To the Universe, and Playing With the Universe.
Asking questions about space is both one of humanity’s oldest pastimes, and most forward-looking ventures. Space Adventure provides an opportunity for everyone to be kids again marveling at the majesty of our universe. Lastly, Space Adventure is part of a continuing series of science-themed traveling exhibitions available for booking across the country.
