5. Philippine Air Force Aerospace Museum

10 Best Places to Bring Your Toddler Series

PAF Museum-20

Kids just love airplanes. They would often point them out happily when they see them up in the sky. The only place where you can actually see and enter an airplane/ helicopter for educational fun is the Aerospace Museum of the Philippine Air Force beside Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3. The museum is dedicated to the glorious history of the Philippine Air Force. There is a display of miniature airplanes and airport on the second floor, which is a hit with the toddlers. You can also see the antique telephones, cameras, and other stuff used during World War 2. Don’t miss getting onboard a real airplane cockpit, where your kid can imagine flying his own plane. The centerpiece of the museum is an experimental Cali 233 airplane where your little one can appreciate its beauty up close and go around it.

After roaming the museum, your kid can feast his eyes on the outdoor display of commercial planes, air force planes, and helicopters. It is like an outdoor playground with real planes and helicopters where kids can climb inside and look around. (Be sure to capture the happiness on your kid's face with your camera and video camera!)

There is a small store where you can buy some snacks and drinks. If you get lucky, the sorbetero cart might be there and you can buy the all-time favorite -- dirty ice cream. Bring extra shirts because the museum is not air-conditioned, or you can opt to buy a souvenir shirt that they sell there. Average budget is P50 per head.

Since the museum is near the airport, watch out for the planes flying in and out of NAIA. For a better vantage point, drop by Heritage Memorial Park at around 5pm. You'll see the airplanes landing one after another. Do prepare yourself in case your kid panics upon hearing loud airplane noise. Bring a kite or any toy to occupy yourself and your kid with while waiting.

Thanks for the tip Anton! Maybe I can bring my makukulit na pamangkins here sometime.

I've been there! I was with my wife and son. When I was a kid, I too was fond of planes. So it felt like there were two kids in the museum that day: me and my son.
