“Art is an effort to create, beside the real world, a more humane world.”
Our country is enriched with culture and art. As our history unfolds, art serves as a proof that our country boost significant details and artifacts that preserves our rich heritage.
One of the living proofs that our country do exhibit rich heritage is the National Museum of the Philippines.
A government agency museum, The National Museum of the Philippines (NM) preserves, exhibits and fosters scholarly study and appreciation of works of arts, specimens and cultural and historical artifacts of the Philippines.
So last July 19, my office mates and I, decided to visit the said museum. The museum is located at P. Burgos Drive, Rizal Park, Manila. So knowing that it is now free of admission, off we go.
The museum has its branches which includes the National Art Gallery, Museum of the Filipino People, Planetarium and Regional Museums.
Apparently, we’ve only visited the the National Art Gallery and Museum of the Filipino People branches. But still, we’ve enjoyed our trip inside the museum.
As I said, admission is free to all, both local and foreign visitors. There is no need to present an ID. You just only need to register at the desk. It is open Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
You can take pictures inside the museum but there are few reminders you should observe. So, to ensure the safety of the visitors, as well as those artifacts, just follow those simple guidelines and prohibitions and enjoy your experience.
To go to National Museum, just follow this direction.
