I consider Sunday as the National Museum Day (too). I really think that Sunday is the best time to visit the National Museum of the Philippines. For the uninitiated, the National Museum of the Philippines allows the general public to enjoy its collection for free every Sunday.
What’s not to like about free entrance or admission to the museum that houses the national cultural treasures of the Philippines?
The Spoliarium painting by Juan Luna remains to be one of my favorite paintings. Whenever I’m at the National Gallery, I never fail to stop by the Hall of Masters and see the towering painting.
The National Museum houses tons of artifacts that I am sure you’ll find interesting. In fact, I keep on coming back to the museum so I could take a close look at the different exhibits. I think spending a whole day at the museum is simply not enough for one to see its entire collection.
So this Sunday, head down to the National Museum and learn more about Philippine history, culture and arts.
