The National Museum of the Philippines

In celebration of the 39th National Heritage Month, the National Museum has free entrance this whole month of May. I went there last week and took a bunch of photos (and videos on Snapchat). I restrained myself from taking many because I do not want to spoil my dear readers. 😀

There are more than ten galleries open for public viewing. Only about a couple were closed, but these galleries were transferred to other rooms so I don’t think I missed anything besides the artefacts. I decided not to see those because I got a terrible headache from walking between their oven-like elevator and chilly galleries. I’m actually quite impressed with the museum. I didn’t expect that many galleries and they still have many spaces they can use even a yard. It can be a good resting area or an outdoor exhibit for temporary installations.
