It is an institutional member of the Philippine Board on Books for Young People and a member of the Zero In Consortium of Museums.

In 2000, Museo Pambata received the Pearl Anniversary Reading Advocacy Award from the Reading Association of the Philippines for having “redefined the concept of a museum and for advocating literacy and children’s rights.” It was also named the Most Child-Friendly Foundation in 2010 by the National Council for Children’s Television.

International Association of Children’s Museums and the European Museum Academy gave Museo Pambata the Children’s Museum Award Special Commendation in 2012 in Bologna, Italy. Museo Pambata was the only non-European museum shortlisted for the First Children’s Museum Award.
