The Museu Pambata is a museum in Philippines that is dedicated to the education of children. The museum was opened by Nina Lim Yuson, an educator and a mother of four children, in 1994. Yuson was inspired to open the kid’s museum after visiting the Boston Children’s Museum with her children and seeing how much fun they had learning through the interactive exhibits. The journey from the idea to the museum was a long one but it eventually came true.

There are many interesting exhibits found here. The Kalikasan display is all about how to protect nature. It also contains an herbal garden. Old Manila shows children what Manila used to be like in the olden days. The Career Options exhibit introduces young children to various professions so that they can find something that they like.

The place receives around 200,000 visitors annually and has developed a reputation for inspiring and educating children. The children’s museum is housed in the former Elks Club Building. It is open daily between 8 am and 5 pm. The museum is closed on Mondays and during all public holidays. The Museu Pambata is a ‘must visit’, especially for families on vacation with their children. The little ones are sure to have a lot of fun, while the adults will certainly not be left behind.
