Yoki’s Farm


What started as a simple hobby has turned into a green sanctuary where sustainability and the beauty of farming thrive. Yoki’s Farm is an ideal place for your next family get-together, letting children interact with animals and do basic hydroponic farming. There’s also a museum where various antiques, pieces of machinery, and Chinese vases, to name a few, are on display.

The Dessert Museum


If your child has a sweet tooth, bringing them to the Dessert Museum will earn you a warm hug. The modern art museum is one sweet wonderland with eight dessert-themed rooms full of every candy you can think of. Aside from the four desserts they give away during the tour, kids aged three and below can enter for free as long as they have one paying adult with them!

Art in Island


Admit it, asking kids to pose and smile for photos is quite a tricky job. If you really want to immortalize their childhood years, bring them to Art in Island. Compared to traditional museums and art galleries, Art in Island is home to interactive 3D artworks that let kids have fun while engaging their imagination. Make sure they have socks on before coming here because shoes are required to be taken off.

Inflatable Island


The summer heat is almost unbearable, so visiting Inflatable Island is a sure way to cool down. Floating on the waters of Olongapo, kids will have a blast going through colorful inflatable slides, towers, bridges, swings, and more! Kids can swing by the cottages to recharge after a fun-filled day. There’s a height requirement of 3.5 feet, and adult supervision is needed for children ages 3 to 6 years old.

Lakbay Museo


Learning about your country’s culture is crucial, especially for a child’s growth. Lakbay Museo showcases the rich heritage of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao without needing to hop on a plane. It’s a good way to introduce kids to the Philippines’ famous attractions, cultural dances, how people from various regions dress themselves, and yummy native delicacies.
