One of my favorite places in the world! I often come here to unwind and immerse myself in the galleries of this museum. Their exhibits are very diverse and are most reflective of the artistry, culture and history of the Filipino people. It brings you from the colonial era to the modern times in the form of captivating artworks.
An earnest and comprehensive display of evolution of art in the Philippines. The color and theme choices for each room evoke appropriate moods and sentiments for the featured artists and their works. An establishment that dignifies our culture and dramatizes our history. Stirs my sense of pride as a Filipino.
The place is quite huge for an art museum. There were a lot of exhibits featuring the works of the famous artists of the Philippines. The place is fully air-conditioned and well maintained. The staff is also courteous and respectful; just make sure to abide by the museum's rules and regulations. Overall, it's a nice place to learn about the rich creativity of Filipinos. Oh, and the best part? It's FREE.
I always appreciate our great artists showcased here, because in many ways, they helped shape our unique cultural and national consciousness. Their great work never ceases to amaze me. Every Filipino should visit here at least once in their lifetime, regardless of language group, ethnicity, creed or persuasion, so that we can celebrate together our humanity, and our unity amidst diversity.
The National Museum of Fine Arts of the Philippines is a deeply interesting place to visit for tourists looking to get to grips with the local culture and history. A visit to the museum can be enjoyed by people of all ages, making it a good attraction for those traveling with children in the Philippines. The large and comprehensive National Museum and Art Gallery of the Philippines preserves and showcases the cultural, historical, and natural heritage of the islands with collections housed in two different buildings (both located with Rizal Park). Exhibits are categorized in 5 divisions: art, botany, zoology, geology, and anthropology. Among the many archaeological exhibits is the skull of "Tabon Man", the oldest human remains found in the archipelago. The section devoted to the Filipino people includes the preserved remains and treasures of the San Diego Spanish galleon that sank in Philippine waters in 1600.
