In celebration of “National Women’s Month,” all female visitors are given free admissions to the National Museum of the Philippines from March 1-31, 2016.
EXPLORING THE PHILIPPINES NATIONAL MUSEUM
Gallery I – Religious Art from the 17th to 19th centuries
Gallery V – Homage to to Dr. José Rizal
GALLERY VIII – Arts Depicting World War II
This gallery portray works that expressed conflicts, destructions, and sufferings during the Japanese Occupation in Manila.
It’s best to allot a whole day when visiting the National Museum of the Philippines. There’s lots of work of arts you have to examine closely and lots of interesting facts you’ll came to know and ponder on. My friend and I weren’t able to visit all the galleries of the National Museum, we only visited half of the galleries at Level 1 for we reached its closing time. I’ll definitely go back to see more.
And one thing I can say, I’m blessed that I’m a Filipino!
National Museum is open on Tuesdays – Sundays at 10 AM – 5 PM only. FREE admission on Sundays!
