National Museum of the Philippines

National Museum of the Philippines or also known as the Pambansang Museo ng Pilipinas is a government institution in the Philippines which is located at Taft Ave, Ermita, Manila, 1000 Metro Manila near the Rizal Park. This place serves as an educational, scientific and cultural institution that preserves numerous permanent national collections. This museum also features ethnographic, anthropological, archaeological and visual artistry of the Philippines. 
My friends and I decided to spend our weekend together in National Museum. One of the reasons why we went there is because they have a promo, the entrance fee is free, and we heard that the paintings, artifacts, and other things there are really great. And that's true, it's really great and one of my friend said, "Today we look like a geek." Indeed, we really look like a geek that time because the things that we don't know yet really amazed us. Like the facts and histories of the things that were being placed there.
This museum is actually big with a lot of floors and each floors represent something. What I like about museums like this is that it preserve and showcase the most valued artifacts that represent the cultural heritage of the Filipinos. With the help of places like these, you can visualize the artistry of the Philippines from the prehistoric period to the modern times. Being in this place will make you feel like you are traveling from past because the artifacts present here are the ones used by our ancient and it makes me feel proud to them that they were able to survive those times without the help of technology that is present now a days.
If you have time, visit it with your family, friends, love ones, and others. Also a reminder, that don't forget to visit the Spoliarium, it is a painting by a known Filipino artist named Juan Luna located at the other building which is just near in National Museum. We forgot to go there and it's very disappointing because we heard that painting holds a lot of meaning in the Philippine history. But we promise to each other that if we have time, we will visit it again and explore the different museums present in the area.
