National Museum

National Museum is probably the most common itinerary of all schools’ educational trips – primary to tertiary. It’s true! 9 out of 10 people say that they have visited this museum more than once in their life and most of them would say that during their educational trip.

Located in the city of Manila, it is accessible to people coming from everywhere in the Metro and provinces nearby through several transportation systems. The National museum is the official site where everything that encompasses and reflects the country’s rich history is housed and preserved into two buildings – The National Art Gallery and the Museum of the Filipino People. The National Art Gallery houses treasured masterpieces, from paintings to sculptures, of some of the most renowned Filipino Artists. The Museum of the Filipino People, serves as a repository of Philippine heritage through its historical and ancestral collections.
