The leading science museum in the Philippines, The Mind Museum is an interactive learning playground with 250 exhibits and two outdoor parks. Inside, the museum is divided into five galleries. From the infinitely small to the infinitely big, the galleries are the Atom Gallery, Life Gallery, Technology Gallery, Earth Gallery, and the Universe Gallery. Some of its many features include the world's most complete dinosaur fossil (a tyrannosaurus rex named Stan), an enlarged molecular structure of a chocolate, a life-size model of the baby blue whale, a simulation of the Hubble Space Telescope, and enlarged version of the human brain. Outside The Mind Museum building, visitors can either play in the Science-in-the-Park or hangout in the zen-inspired JY Campos Park. The museum itself looks like a silver spaceship that just landed in the center of Taguig's business district.
The Manila American Cemetery and Memorial bears witness to the true cost of war. With more than 17 thousand graves and 36 thousand names of the missing, this cemetery is the largest World War II graveyard in the world. The American Cemetery is laid out on a plateau at the Fort Bonifacio, overlooking city buildings, Laguna de Bay, distant mountains at the north, and the slums of Taguig. Composed of more than 16 thousand American and 500 Filipino troops, the graves are divided alphabetically into 11 burial plots, arranged into concentric rings. At the center of the rings is the American Memorial, which contains the chapel, the four rooms walled with 25 WWII mosaic maps, and the numerous limestone tablets engraved with the names of the missing. The chapel, also made of limestone, displays the relief sculpture of St. George fighting the enemy dragon.
Bonifacio Global City, also known as Fort Mckinley, is one of the biggest business districts in Metro Manila. The City shines of leisure and exclusivity due to its reputation and its sprawling business and commercial spaces. Many high-end malls, restaurants, bars, and spaces are located within the city. BGC was once a military camp and is part of the multi-hectare portion of Taguig that the United States government acquired in 1902. The city also became the subject for disputes for its rightful owner between Makati and Taguig, but in 2007 Taguig became the official owner of BGC.
