The first line of our title came from Walter Disney, pioneer in educational entertainment and founder of Disneyland and the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (EPCOT) Center. The Philippines does not have any of Disney’s facilities but it has children’s museums with interactive, enjoyable exhibits that help children learn to become better individuals and heirs of our planet. The pioneers, the Philippine Science Centrum (PSC) and Museo Pambata, have been operating since 1990 and 1994, respectively. 

On Feb. 23-25, 2008, the  Museo Pambata is organizing the First Asian Children's Museum Conference. To know more about the conference and this topic, tune in Kalikasan, Kaunlaran!
