The Mind Museum’s Dino Play : Explore The World Of Dinosaurs

Posted on Jul 30 2016 - 1:44pm by tweenselmom

I guess we are all fascinated by dinosaurs because they give us a chance to use our imaginations. That’s why dinosaurs are also loved by kids. They are supposed to be scary and yet, the kids, even my girls, love to watch The Jurassic Park and read about them from Science books.

Last week, we had a grand time together as we explored the world of dinosaurs complete with sands and magnifying lenses, just like real excavators or paleontologists (oy I had to search that, that’s what they call the persons who study about dinosaurs specifically fossils). Dino Play: Explore the Mind-blowing World of Dinosaurs! is the latest exhibition at The Mind Museum. It’s located right before the entrance of the museum and I am sure you won’t miss it because the jeepney, the towering dinosaur and dinosaur egg will entice your kids right away.



It was a great idea for the The Mind Museum owners to have this kind of extra exhibit. Although we are fascinated with the humongous T-rex inside the museum, the dinosaur experience inside is quite limited. In Dino Play, not only that the kids will see more types of dinosaur fossils but they can do various activities inside the playroom too. It’s also a place which can be enjoyed even by older kids.

There are 4 nests inside Dino Play and in each one of them, kids can learn a lot about dinosaurs and play different dino activities.

Dino Dig

Kids will use their Palentologist Field Kits to dig and discover hidden fossils. You know how kids love to dig around and get messy. This is their chance to do that and learn at the same time.

Dino Dig - Dino PlayDino Lab

This area is like an actual lab complete with shelves and bones and fossils for inspection.   There are dinosaur bones, petrified wood, ancient shelled creatures called ammonites, and even dinosaur poop that has since turned to stone.

Dino Fun

Dino Fun is the place where little kids can use their energy to go up the tower and go down rappelling.

Dino Den

This where kids can pretend as dinosaurs because there are dinosaur costumes and dino slippers to wear as they walk on the soft, carpeted pavement where they will leave their footprints just like real dinosaurs.

You can choose to spend the day in the Dino Play only but it will be more fun to continue exploring Science when you go to a complete museum tour inside The Mind Museum. We’ve been to TMM for several times but we still find new things to do and explore whenever we visit. This time we tried watching the 3D show of the evolution of the universe. And of course, we visited our favorite T-Rex.

    We’ve been to Mind Museum before but there is no Dino Play pa. My son loves dinosaurs and I hope we could visit this before September 30.

    I love museums! It’s sad that in the place where I am in, there are not so many museums for kids to go to. This will be an additional list to go to. Thanks for this. =)

    This is so cool! Sana the boys and I get to catch that exhibit before it ends.

    Interesting! We’ve been delaying going to The Mind Museum though since my daughter is still too young to enjoy pa. Once she’s old enough to appreciate (and hinde matakot) the dinosaurs, we’ll go here. Thanks for the review.

    My daughter loves anything dinosaur too! We live near BGC and I’m hoping that we can visit one of these days.

    This is great! I wanted to bring my kids ot The Mind Museum but was hesitant because they are still young. With this, I’m sure they will have fun.

    I wish we can visit The Mind Museum too. Will probably include this in our itinerary when we go back to Manila!

    This is really a cool idea, and it’s too bad we didn’t see it last time we were there! But this just means that we have to go back during our next trip. Ang ganda! Do you think kids under 3 would enjoy though?

    Yay! I wonder if I could bring my 1 year old kasi he seems to like dinos and dragons. But this is so nice. Even the parents would surely enjoy.

    Ruben’s favorite part of the exhibit is the Dino Den! He loves dressing up as a dinosaur. 🙂

    I’ve read a lot of good things about this exhibit. My kids would love the kinetic sand for sure.

    I’ve never been to the Mind Museum. This is a great way to familiarize your kids with the prehistoric era. 🙂

    My toddler has been into dinosaurs lately! Time for a little field trip!

    We did this, too! Trying to entertain a toddler is not easy but this visit ticked all the boxes and he got out of the museum smitten! A great visit, lots of fun and educational to boot. Very much recommend!
