First United Building Community Museum

Manila – the first in the country to be modernized after hundreds of years to be colonized. It is also home to the first tramway (railway) station, the center of administration, and the first commercial district in the country, Escolta. You can find here the center of commerce way back in the American era in the Philippines, and tons of American inspired buildings built during their occupation, unfortunately, Escolta was part of the casualties and heavy damage during World War II and some of these buildings withstood the Japanese siege of Manila.

Rizal’s Ancestral House Laguna

Every December 30, we Filipinos celebrate the Martyrdom of our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. To give you a little background, Dr. Rizal is our national hero, who fought the Spanish government by non-violent means like propaganda movement and thru literature. He is most familiar with his 2 books, the NOLI ME TANGERE (Touch me not) and its sequel, EL FILIBUSTERISMO (The Filibustering) in which he showed the tyranny and mistreatment of the Spanish government to the Filipinos.

Casa Santa

As museum goers, we usually have this notion that a museum is and will be about History (artifacts), and the Arts (paintings). But this time, we found a museum that is neither of the two. It also coincides on the favorite and the longest season for us Filipinos, Christmas Season.

Malolos City Museum (Museo ng Republika ng Malolos)

After Pinto Art Museum, we decided to do another out-of-town museum trip. It felt like going on an educational field trip again, like when we were kids. A field trip! Where? Up north of Manila! The province where our language was born: The province of Bulacan.

Marikina Shoe Museum

Marikina City is better known in the Philippines as the nation’s shoe capital, wherein shoe-making is the main industry, and that you can buy locally-made footwear at a very affordable price, with world-class quality. Having said so, it is just fitting (no pun intended) to put up a shoe museum in the same city.
