Lopez Museum and Library

A museum in Ortigas Center? Yes, sir!

The Lopez Memorial Museum prides itself to be the oldest privately owned and managed museum and library, which concentrates specifically on Philippine items. Rare items, such as maps, books and paintings are among those interesting and carefully preserved items they have there.

Apart from those, is that this museum changes their theme and exhibits every once in a while, making them one of the museums that one will surely come back to.

The theme of the museum’s exhibit from February 6 – May 30, 2015 was “Propaganda”. It was about the juxtaposition of propaganda and today’s reality, as our country prepares for the 2016 elections. The museum guide articulately explained how the paintings of depicting the past events juxtaposed the paintings of today. There is a big correlation on how propagandists’ tactics worked way back in the colonial times and war era to the present.

The exhibit covers all from the Spanish Era up to the present. The museum also intricately connected their library materials to the museum materials. It feels like it jived.

This is part of the Propaganda Exhibit. Your museum-going experience can be enhanced, and rest-assured, this is worth your time as they have different exhibits, plus they are in partnership with Samsung, so you can use tablets to have a unique digital experience apart from the traditional artworks. This technology is called the Augmented Reality Technology.

Not your typical museum, right? Plus the guides are very knowledgeable and accommodating as well.

If you work or live near or within the area, why don’t you drop by and check out the latest exhibit and events that they offer? I’m pretty sure you will enjoy and learn from it.
