    The Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City Taguig
    Before I give you different driving directions to the Philippines' first world class science museum via each of these main artillery roads, I will first show you where to park your car nearer to its location. There are two parking areas adjacent to The Mind Museum. First is across 30th St (north of The Mind Museum), second is across 28th St (south of The Mind Museum). These are the two roads that bounded The Mind Museum to its north and south sides, respectively. See the map below to familiarize yourself with the parking areas' locations and the flow of traffic around The Mind Museum. Please observe the one way traffic along 3rd Ave and Rizal Dr. You can view two more location maps of The Mind Museum at the end of this post. For Commute Directions, go to The Mind Museum Commuters' Guide.

    As you can see in this map, you can drive around The Mind Museum counter clockwise. Rizal Dr and 3rd Ave are one-way while 28th and 30th streets are two-way. So, you can always park your car after dropping off your companions by crossing either 30th Street or 28th St.

    How To Get To The Mind Museum By Car

    Depending on your location, take any of these roads:

    Lawton Avenue - the road that continues Sales Road across Osmena Highway aka SLEX.

    1. thanks, i'm planning to bring my nephew here on 1st week of April (we're both science geeks), i'll take note of this...

    2. @ Yuu Ki, you are welcome. you and your nephew will definitely enjoy it there.

    3. hi, on SLEX northbound from sucat, what are the landmarks before "the rightmost lane of C-5 that leads to 26th St."?
      do i enter the service road?

    4. @ mb. First you take C-5 from SLEX northbound. Just drive under the road sign that reads "Fort Bonifacio" or "Taguig". You get to pass through the exit toll of Carlos P Garcia Ave (C-5). Now in C-5, stay to the middle until you drive past Libingan Ng Mga Bayani and Heritage Memorial Park which are to your left. Watch for Upper McKinley Road which is wide street perpendicular to the left of C-5 opposite Shell and Jollibee which are to your right. Up ahead take the service road, rightmost lane of C-5 that goes directly to 26th Street of Bonifacio Global City. Upon approach, the service road goes uphill towards the bridge that crosses C-5. Take the leftmost lane of the service road and turn left onto the bridge, that's 26th Street. Hope my direction helps you.

    5. Lag alag, Thanks so much for the detailed instructions!

    6. @ mb. You are very much welcome. :)

    7. Still, despite the drawback shown, the numerous good characteristics of the city is sufficient enough to keep it as the top city within the metro.
