My visit to Museo Pambata last friday was one of the best times of my life. I was alone and came away with somehow the most of the feelings you could imagine from a great experience to meet and mingle with kids and to talk with people with the same interest as mine . I love the entire feeling . Felt like I was a kid again playing around.Last Friday, I was fortunate enough to visit my favorite museum , which is the Museo Pambata. The very first time I got here was in grade school and since then I fell inlove with the museums. I remember when I was a kid, educational field trips happen once per calendar year. The second time I visited the Museo Pambata was in 2008 which is quite a while.
The Museum reopens three new environment themed learning rooms last December 2, 2011. It features Kalikasan, Karagatan and Herbal Garden.
The new rooms were made possible by D.M. Consunji Inc. and Semirara Mining Corporation. It showcases the Philippine Rainforests and ricefields at the Kalikasan area , coastal area at the Karagatan section and indigenous medicinal plants at the Herbal Garden. The galleries are open to the public by December 3, 2011.
The program started at exactly 10:00am at the Karapatan Hall. Maricel P. Montero, Executive Director of Museo Pambata hosted the program . Nina Lim Yuson , the president and CEO of Museo Pambata presented her welcome remarks while Hon. Alfredo Lim, Mayor of the city of Manila and D.M. Consunji Inc Founder David M Consunji gave their sincere messages to everyone who joined the event. Fr. Sanny De Claro , Parish priest of Nuestra Senora de Guia, was also there to bless the Kalikasan and Karagatan rooms as well as the Herbal Garden.
