Museo De Intramuros

by - May 13, 2019

This May, we celebrate the National Heritage Month that’s why Department of Tourism (DOT) encourage each one of us to explore and learn more about the Philippine culture and history by paying a visit to newly opened Museo de Intramuros. It can be easily found because it is in front of San Ignacio Church and the Mission House of the Society of Jesus. You can visit this museum every Tuesday to Friday at 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. If a lot of people visit it, there is a possibility that they would open the museum on weekends too. The admission is free so you don’t have to worry for paying any entrance fee and you may want to bring a fan with you because some parts of the museum is not yet air-conditioned.
It officially opened last April 29, 2019 in line with the 40th year anniversary of Intramuros Administration. This institution is the agency of DOT to be in-charge for the restoration, development, and promotion of historic walled city of Intramuros. They are the one who is managing this museum because it houses their different art collections that includes ecclesiastical art, furniture, vestments, textiles, and other artifacts. All of the things that can be seen here are being curated by different people like Dr. Esperanza Gatbonton, Gino Gonzales, Dr. Cecilia dela Paz, Santiago Pilar, and Martin Tinio.
You may think that this museum is all about Intramuros because of its name but actually most of the artifacts here are all about the evangelization of the Philippines. It tells a story on how the Philippines changed when they were introduced a new religion and culture due to the colonization period. This museum have a three floors with seven components in total namely;

1. The Immaculate Conception
2. The Religious Order
3. The Patronato Real and the Establishment of Parishes
4. Religious Colonial Paintings
5. The Establishment of a Parish and Sacred Vessels
6. The Indio Response
7. Las Casas de Dios (The Churches of Intramuros)
You should definitely visit this Museum because this is the proof of deep passion and love of our country of every people behind this. They made it possible to tell the world the story of our rich history by collecting and preserving the heritage structures and objects that we have despite the hundred years had pass.
