  • I went on a Sunday at the opening with my son. Placed on manila Bay, near the American Embassy, with parking for those arriving by car. On two levels and divided in different rooms as the old manila, where you can find the thumbnail of the manila Cathedral, an old streetcar and more; or the body section with games related to various senses and organs. Very pleasant is the market where are rebuilt stores like the vegetable market, Baker, Barber and where children can play freely. Very clean but looks kinda old and stale as the games to their interiors. Needs an overhaul.
