Because variational principles are very important for some methods to get the numerical or exact solutions, it is very important to seek explicit variational formulations for the non-linear PDE. At first, this paper describes the modified Benjamin-Bona-Mahony equation in fractal porous media or with irregular boundaries. Then, by designing skillfully the trial-Lagrange functional, variational principles are successfully established for the modified Benjamin-Bona-Mahony equation in the fractal space, respectively. Furthermore, the obtained variational principles are proved correct by minimizing the functionals with the calculus of variations.
