The 3,500-sqm Omniverse Museum is every dork’s walk-through dreamland. Since it opened last March 8, 2023, the Omniverse Museum featured 20 different rooms, showcasing Star Wars, Marvel and DC Superheroes, Harry Potter and other fictitious TV and movie worlds. A visit to the Omniverse Museum is like going to Universal Studios while staying in the Metro.
Located at Japan Town on the 4th floor of Glorietta 2, the Omniverse Museum is on the far off not-so-visible part of the mall. It’s good that my husband knew exactly where he wanted to go. I was surprised the entrance was small. So far, not so impressed.
Tickets were not that cheap at ₱1499 per person. You can buy the tickets online, but we purchased ours at the door. Except for the babies, everyone needed to have tickets even the yaya and our 7-year old and 4-year olds. They had a promo which we partook at ₱8,000 for 8 people.
You also had to leave your bags at the door, which was slightly annoying. There are lockers you can rent.
Thankfully, we arrived at 7pm, which was their last call. The staff said that the museum takes 2 hours to enjoy, which is why they close ticket selling at exactly 7pm.
That said, we paid for our tickets and started our visit into the Omniverse Museum. This was the welcome sign by owner Ryan Sison at the ticketing area.
The Omniverse Museum is an immersive educational entertainment experience, utilizing pop culture collectibles and memorabilia from all ages and multiverses as tools to bridge the gap between fiction and reality.
To be fair, everything until this moment was NOT impressive. I did not like that it was not very visible, we had to leave our bags and they closed early so we had to forgo dinner. However, from the moment we entered the Museum, we were BLOWN AWAY.
This is NOT an exaggeration, my friends. I am not paid to say this and we paid for our tickets. But the ₱1,499 ticket is worth every single penny. Mr. Ryan Sison’s curated museum is every dork and non-dork’s dream, and it’s one of the BEST PLACES to spend 2 hours with, if you have not yet.
THE FIRST ROOM – ORIENTATION
The first room is for Orientation – for the do’s and don’ts. Basically, it’s a young Ryan Sison sharing his dream to enable other Filipinos to enjoy his awesome toy collections.
Even the first station is impressive, with life-sized statues of Spiderman, the Silver Surfer, Ironmen, Darth Vader and Yoda.
Here’s the walkthrough video. Videos are no match to going there personally.
THE SECOND ROOM: THE STAR WARS ROOM
I loved the interior of this room. The contrast of the grey interiors of the first room and the bright white room of the Star Wars Room excited me.
This was one of the brightest rooms in the entire museum. I never realized how big BB8 was.
Walkthrough although nothing beats the real thing! More impressive in person!
THE THIRD ROOM: STAR WARS HALLWAY
THE FOURTH ROOM; THE STAR DESTROYER ROOM
The Star Destroyer Room houses all the villains, including Asajj Ventress and Darth Vader.
Video Walkthrough of the Room:
THE FIFTH ROOM: JABBA’S PALACE
Kids can play in the sad which my son truly enjoyed. Ladies can be caught by Jabba the Hut and act like Princess Leia in a bikini:
THE SIXTH ROOM: THE FOREST ROOM, ENDOR
Bushy trees and forests meet us in the Forest Room where they reenact the Battle of Endor with Chewbacca and Yoda from the movie, “Return of the Jedi.”
THE SEVENTH ROOM: HARRY POTTER HALL OF MAGIC
From Star Wars, we are brought into the World of Harry Potter. The Hogwarts Room is a great replica, complete with hanging candles. The room was so beautiful it took our breath away:
There’s even a battle scene with Harry Potter and Voldermort.
THE EIGHTH ROOM: GAME OF THRONES
Take a photo on the Game of Thrones:
THE NINTH ROOM: LORD OF THE RINGS
THE TENTH ROOM: SUPERMAN’S WORLD
We were welcomed into the Fortress of Solitude, which is Superman’s Home.
Interestingly, the actual suit worn by Henry Cavill was part of the exhibit. So yeah, he’s really tall.
THE ELEVENTH ROOM: WONDER WOMAN’S THEMYSCIRA
TWELFTH ROOM: AQUAMAN’S ATLANTIS
Life sized model of Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Meera
THE THIRTEENTH ROOM: HALL OF JUSTICE
The Hall of Justice is the headquarters of the Justice League:
FOURTEENTH ROOM: THE BAT CAVE
FIFTEENTH ROOM: THE ARKHAM ASYLUM
The Arkham Asylum houses the many deadly enemies of Batman
SIXTEENTH: THE AVENGERS ROOM
Photo with all the heroes!
SEVENTEENTH ROOM: IRONMAN’s GARAGE
The son enjoyed the many scientific trinkets:
There are many places to sit and rest in this room:
Spiderman in Infinity War
Hall of Armor: Double deck showcase with 14 different armors used in various Marvel movies
EIGHTEENTH ROOM: THE ANIME ROOM
NINETEENTH ROOM: HELLBOY ROOM
TWENTIETH ROOM: ANOTHER VILLAIN ROOM
You can take the safer child-friendly route or the horror route. I took the horror route and these were on display:
The last room was the souvenir shop which sold many reasonably priced food, snacks, t-shirts, caps and mugs. The cap was a reasonable ₱400 and the mugs were only ₱180 each.
I was so blown away by the Omniverse Museum that I can’t help but buy more things at the souvenir shop if only to help Mr. Ryan Sison and his museum. I have been to many other walkthrough museums but this was one of the BEST I saw in the Philippines.
I strongly suggest you visit the Omniverse Museum with your family and friends. Ensure that you’ve eaten before you go, and prepare enough money for the tickets. It’s not for the destitute but if you want a real treat, this is one of the best attractions in Metro Manila and definitely a must see if you have not visited yet.
Highly recommended, 10 star attraction!
