Manila: National Museum of the Philippines – National Art Gallery

I just woke up one day realizing that the last time I visited the National Museum of the Philippines was more than a decade ago during a school field trip. So my sister and I decided to brave the harsh summer sun to visit the museum (outside temperature was 35 degrees).

So after signing the visitor log, paying the admission fee and leaving our bags at the counter we started our journey of rediscovering Philippine history. We decided to allocate two hours for our visit but ended up spending 3 hours.

Other than the awe-inspiring works of art housed in the museum, we took a moment to appreciate the architecture of the building itself.
