To say that the little man enjoyed his previous visits to KidZania Manila is such an under-statement, so you can imagine how excited he was when he found out that we were going back there yet again for the launch of the all-new National Art and Design Academy.

Art is a creative way to teach the little ones to express themselves and their individuality. It is also a great tool for them to explore, discover, and learn and what better way to do it than to bring them to the National Art and Design Academy at KidZania Manila. The play city opens at 9am-4pm {on Mondays to Thursdays}, and at 9am-2pm and 3-8pm {on Fridays to Sundays}. You can book your tickets at manila.kidzania.com.
