I had the chance to visit The Mind Museum last February 10, 2012. It’s on dry run until it opens to the public next month, with a couple of exhibits still under development. It was a little bit “bitin” given that not all displays are working. Still, the privilege to check out the museum this early was well worth the donation. It was fun. I felt like a student once again, browsing through various displays and getting fascinated with the many things to see and do. Of course, I plan to go back when everything’s in place.

From the outside, the structure of The Mind Museum is modern and beautiful. It looks massive on the outside; but it was a bit smaller than I imagined on the inside. Maybe it was due to the sheer volume of exhibits in the museum. At this stage, a three hour visit is more than enough to check everything out.

Before entering the galleries, you will be welcomed by an I-Fairy model robot named Aede.

Inside, there are five galleries: Universe, Atom, Life, Earth and Technology. Each gallery has a Mind Mover knowledgeable about concepts and facts relating to a particular subject. They are there to assist you if you have any questions about a certain display. If you don’t have any queries, you’re free to browse around on your own. There’s definitely a lot to see and experience at The Mind Museum. Here’s just some of them:
