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.

Please view the Flickr album here. The National Museum is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays, 10AM to 5PM. Their website is at www.nationalmuseum.gov.ph.
