  • For driving directions, please go to The Mind Museum Driving Directions.

    Reputed to be the Philippines first world-class science museum, the sleek and futuristic designed exhibition hall dubbed as The Mind Museum is situated at the entire block of a western part of Bonifacio Global City in Taguig bounded by Rizal Drive, 30th Street, 3rd Avenue and 28 Street.



    By commuting, the intersection you should be heading to is the corner of 3rd Ave and 28 St which is the nearest point to Bus Stop and jeepney unloading area in the vicinity. There are three immediate locations from which you can ride a jeepney or a shuttle bus bound for Mind Museum. They are: The Fort Bus Terminal in EDSA adjacent to MRT Ayala Station, BGC Central Terminal in Market Market adjacent to C-5 and the Loading Area of Jeepney with "Gate 3" sign in Guadalupe outside Guadalupe Commercial Complex.

    How To Reach The Mind Museum From MRT-3 Ayala Station In EDSA?

    Use the north exit of MRT Ayala Station which leads to the lane of EDSA where the buses that pass through are bound for north of Metro Manila, e.g. Monumento, Novaliches, Fairview, Cubao, Malanday, etc. Get inside the BGC Bus Terminal which is just across MRT stairs and a few meters away. Buy your ticket at the window inside the terminal. Depending on what time you will ride a bus at BGC Bus Terminal, you can take any of these three bus routes: "West Route", "West Upper", "West Lower."

    The Mind Museum in Taguig
    The Mind Museum is located between "Net One 3rd Ave Bus Stop" and "Bonifacio Stopover Bus Stop." Both "West Route" and "Lower West" buses stop at Net One 3rd Ave Stop while "Upper West" bus is the one that stops at Bonifacio Stopover. If you're riding either "West Route" or "Lower West" bus, alight at the third bus stop from EDSA. The first bus stop is after the bus makes it first leftturn which is at 5th Ave. The second bus stop is at 26th St opposite the tall RCBC Corporate Center and so it is called RCBC but also known as The Fort Bus Stop. The third bus stop is at 3rd Ave, Net One Bus Stop, after the bus turns right from 26th St. You must get off the bus at Net One Stop and walk along 3rd Ave. The Mind Museum is the elongated building at the left side of 3rd Ave next to 28th St intersection. You can easily see it from the bus stop. "Upper West" buses take EDSA and Kalayaan Ave. They stop at Bonifacio Stopover Bus Stop which is the second bus stop, the first bus stop is 5th Ave Bus Stop HSBC. Alight at Bonifacio Bus Stop, cross 31st St, walk along Rizal Dr, cross 30th St and you'll immediately see The Mind Musuem at left of Rizal Dr. The Mind Museum is next to the small park which is also part of the Mind Museum complex.

    Follow the red arrows in the map: Walk from Net One Bus Stop & Bonifacio Stopover Bus Stop & Walk from Market Market to The Mind Museum.

    Tap your thumb in the map and drag from right to left.




    How To Reach The Mind Museum From Market Market In C-5?

    Option 1 - Walk down High Street

    You can walk via High Street from Market Market to Mind Museum. That's because Mind Museum is located right at the western end of High Street while Market Market is at the eastern end of High Street. It's good to take this walk route as you get to enjoy the view of the entire stretch of High Street making the whole experience memorable and fun.

    Option 2 - Ride a BGC bus from Market Market Terminal

    BGC Bus Market Market Terminal
    Go to the BGC Bus Market Market Terminal located outside the building of Market Market along service road paralleled to C-5. The terminal is at your left if you get out of Jollibee and at your right if you're facing Jollibee. If you're coming from FX and Jeepney Terminal outside Metro Market Market, just get inside the mall, exit at the other side and make left, walk past Jollibee. If you're riding a jeep from Gate 3 Jeepney Terminal, alight at unloading area of Market Market and walk by the frontage of Market Market mall, walk past McDonald's and Jollibee. There are two buses that serve commuters from this terminal. The first bus is with "East Route" sign. The second bus is with "BGC Central Market Market" sign. You must ride only the bus with "BGC Central Market Market" sign. If there's none when you arrive, just wait for it. First Bus Stop is "Bonifacio High Street" as the driver announces it, but the bus won't stop if no one is alighting there. Second Bus Stop is at 26th St, before 5th Ave and opposite RCBC Corporate Center. Third Bus Stop is 3rd Ave "Net One". And the fourth bus stop is at Neb Cube. Alight at this bus stop, Net Cube, and follow walking direction in the map above.

    How To Reach The Mind Museum From Guadalupe?

    The sign in front of the jeepney that you must ride is "Gate 3". This jeep has also wordings on its both sides that read "Guadalupe Ft Bonifacio Gate 3". Some of them has "Market Market" on their signs. The loading area for these jeepneys is located outside Chowking Branch of Guadalupe Commercial Center, the mall connected to MRT-3 Guadalupe Station. From the inside of Guadalupe Commercial Center, just take the main entrance beside Chowking to get outside. You will immediately see the jeepney queue right there with barkers yelling out the jeepneys' route and destination. Ride one of these jeepneys. Now, you have two options: First option is to take this jeepney all the way to 5th Ave corner Rizal Drive where you can alight and walk your way to Mind Museum. The second option is to get off the jeepney at BGC Central Terminal as the jeep passes by there, then, ride bus with "BGC Central Market Market" sign, follow direction in "How To Reach Mind Museum From Market Market?". The difference between the two is the distance involved in the walk needed to get to Mind Museum. If you take the jeepney all the way to 5th Ave, you have to walk down approximately 550 meters. But it's faster because, if you opt to have a second ride which is by bus, you might still wait for arrival of "BGC Central Market Market" bus. Below is the walking direction from the corner of 5th Ave and Rizal Dr to The Mind Museum. Fort Victoria is located right at the corner after the jeeps turns left to 5th Ave from 24th St. Sun Life Center building is at the other corner. Just remember, the jeepney takes 26th St from Market Market, turns left at 9th Ave, turns right again, and then after some more left and right turns on small roads which take the jeep to 24th St, it finally turns left onto the main intersecion with traffic lights which is 5th Ave.

    3. I enjoyed looking at the many wall paintings that you have done. Not being very handy with a paintbrush, even though I know what I like in the way of art, I took the easier option to order this canvas print from the site wahooart.com .
      It’s an unusual work called Forest music 1, by Remedios Varo Uranga, a Spanish-Mexican woman artist.
