Although adults often come here with excited children in tow, it is not always the kids who wear the widest grins. At this “hands-on” museum, visitors are encouraged to touch, smell, listen and feel numerous themed exhibits.

To name but two examples, Old Manila features “talking telephones” that allow the listener to hear a national hero introduce himself, while Bodyworks introduces various parts of the body through over-sized models that can be assembled and reassembled.

Devote at least half a day to this highly entertaining and informative museum.
