National Museum of the Philippines

The National Museum of the Philippines is a museum of culture and history located in the capital city of Manila. It opened in 1901, next to Rizal Park in the city's central area. The National Museum supports 19 branches throughout the country, and the Manila museum is housed in what were once the city's official Congress and Finance buildings. The anthropology department boasts a collection of 10,000 artefacts, including prehistoric art, jewellery, boats, and pottery. The National Museum of the Philippines sponsors temporary exhibits, workshops, and performances, all with the purpose of preserving traditional Filipino culture.

  • View the National Museum of the Philippines' Fine Art collection, which includes Philippine artworks from the 18th century to the present, including paintings, decorated panels, sculptures, and various other mediums.
  • See the largest collection of botanical plants, including ferns, seaweed, and fungi, in the country at Manila's National Museum of the Philippines' Herbarium collection.
  • Check out Manila's National Museum exhibit, "San Diego," which displays the gold coins, jewellery, and other treasures found on this Spanish ship that sank off the coast of the Philippines in 1600.

Many visitors to Manila arrive via the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. It is also possible to reach Manila from other locations within the country by either boat or bus. The city's public transportation system consists of metro service, buses, local jeepneys, and taxis. Traffic within the city is notoriously congested, so it is a good idea to allow for more travel time in any itinerary. The National Museum of the Philippines is located on Burgos, in front of the City Hall. The Metro LRT Line-1 runs to Central Station and is the closest metro stop to the National Museum.
