A Sneak Peek at The Catsup Museum by Nutriasia in Cabuyao Laguna
Since we are planning to homeschool my son next school year, as early as now I am already doing a list of our trips to museums and other educational places all over the Metro. My son is a visual learner and I know he will understand the history and how things work when he sees it with his own eyes. I’m glad that museums nowadays are getting innovative by making their place interesting for younger generations.
With that, let me tell you about a new museum that I recently visited. In partnership with The Mind Museum and Nutriasia,they created the first ever Catsup Museum not only in the Philippines but in the World.
This place is located at Cabuyao Laguna besides the Nutriasia power plant.
This is the walkway to the entrance to the Catsup Museum.
This cute little standee will welcome you
The catsup museum aims to immortalize the story of banana catsup through an informative and interactive experience. It also imparts to the younger generation the significance of the timeless Filipino virtues of ingenuity, resourcefulness and hard work.
This is the reception area.
Here are the things you’ll see inside:
First is the Hall of the History of banana. You will learn about the different banana variants here. Here kids will learn that the banana is not a tree but rather they are plants.
Next is the Maria Orosa Hall, named after the inventor of banana catsup. She uses banana to make catsup because during World War II tomatoes are quite rare and expensive.
Next is the Manufacturing Hall which offers an immersive experience on the step by step production of commercial banana catsup.
Then, there is this Banaquet Hall which provides larger than life installations of food and banana catsup. I borrowed one and used it in this picture.
You can also see this Banana Q’s area wherein there are some trivia and questions attached to it. Don’t worry the answer are also indicated there.
Kids can also use this activity area to entertain themselves.
I saw previous commercials (pictures) on display at the walls too and look!!!.. there are also some post in IG that are included.
There is no entrance fee but as of now you can only visit the place if you will have an appointment. Try to email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Tel# 0917 815 0194
