Making Learning More Fruitful And Banana-mazing With The Catsup Museum’s Virtual Tour

For the past few months, parents and kids alike have had to stay safe at home together, finding ways to bond and learn more about each other. Parents in particular have had to become more creative in coming up with solutions to keep their children entertained, while fostering their development at the same time. With the wide range of resources available on the internet, it can sometimes be difficult to find the right balance between the two.

Making learning more fun and fruitful is part of the mission of The Catsup Museum. Founded in 2017 by NutriAsia in partnership with The Mind Museum, the establishment opened its doors to immortalize the story of the well-loved and uniquely Filipino banana catsup, giving visitors a deeper understanding of its history and how it’s made, with rich visuals and impressive displays. Home to beloved household names like UFC, Papa, Jufran and Mafran, NutriAsia set up The Catsup Museum in order to promote the Filipino virtues of ingenuity, resourcefulness and hard work, which all go into each bottle of banana catsup.

The Catsup Museum Goes Virtual

This July, The Catsup Museum goes online, hosting a virtual tour and an interactive module to provide banana-mazing learning resources for kids of all ages. The virtual tour will take viewers around the interactive exhibits of the museum, while giving in-depth commentary and even mini quizzes per area. With a trusty banana acting as a guide, the tour also offers 360o viewing, allowing the audience to click and drag their mouse or move their mobile phone around to see every angle.

Giving a closer look into each hall and exhibit, The Catsup Museum virtual tour starts off at the Hall of the Natural History of Banana. Here, parents and their kids can learn more about the condiment’s main ingredient, including where it was first planted, its life stages and the nutrients it gives. Following this is the Maria Ylagan Orosa Hall, named after the Filipina food technologist, chemist, humanitarian, and war heroine who invented banana catsup. Then, viewers are taken behind the scenes into how each bottle of catsup is made in the Manufacturing Hall, a replica of the factories used by NutriAsia. Rounding up the tour is the Banquet Hall, which features larger-than-life food displays representing dishes banana catsup can be enjoyed with.

For kids who love videos and games, The Catsup Museum will also be launching an interactive module entitled Banana 101. Centered on the wonder fruit, kids can enjoy a series of entertaining activities that will teach them everything about the banana, from its history and life cycle, to how they are grown and processed into the food they eat.

The Catsup Museum’s digital resources are all part of Homeschool: Masarap Matuto, Masaya Mag-Aral, NutriAsia’s first ever learning platform made to spark curiosity in every child. Carving a new path to learning for parents and children alike, the selection of educational materials will cover topics such as health and nutrition for yourself and the family sponsored by Papa, and an introduction to beloved Philippine fruits care of Locally, and will be launched through NutriAsia’s website very soon.
