June 2: Free admission to the National Museum has been extended to the whole month of June!
Due to the heavy turnout of visitors last month when the National Museum of the Philippines decided to celebrate the National Heritage Month, the Museum administration decided to extend its free admission to the public. This is also in line with the country’s celebration of its 117th Independence Day and Jose Rizal’s 154th birthday.
May has been declared as “National Heritage Month” in the Philippines.
To promote and encourage greater awareness and deeper appreciation of their country’s rich cultural and historical heritage, the National Museum of the Philippines is offering FREE admission to the public for the entire month.
Among the huge collection of historical and cultural pieces of the National Museum are Juan Luna’s “Spoliarium” and his other major works; important masterpieces from the country’s finest visual artists including Guillermo Tolentino, Fernando Amorsolo, Carlos Francisco, Vicente Manansala, Napoleon Abueva, and Juan Arellano; priceless artifacts from the pre-colonial period; and exhibits of botanical, zoological and geological resources that are endemic to the Philippines.
The National Museum or the Museum of the Filipino People is located at the former Legislative Building at P. Burgos Drive, Rizal Park. The museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays, from 10am to 5pm.
