THE MUSEUM OF THE FILIPINO PEOPLE



Formerly housing the Ministry of Finance, it is now The Museum of the Filipino People with collections from the sunken San Diego galleon, among other archaeological finds from around the Philippine islands. Building designed by Daniel Hudson Burnham, 1905, for his City Beautiful movement.

Nagbago na ba ang pangalan niyan? Dati ang alam ko ang tawag diyan National Museum. Officially na bang binago to be Museum of the Filipino People?

I enjoyed that place. Went there twice for school reports back in my UP days.

The National Museum Complex is now composed of three (3) buildings: The National Gallery (former Senate building, the one found on the 50-peso bill), this building (former Finance, now Museum of the Filipino People), and the Tourism Office across it(Tourism will transfer to Cebu soon). The latter will house the Natural Sciences Museum. Cool, huh!

That's sad to know, Bro jeff. To think na the 1st ever internet connection in the Philippines happened in Cebu (in USC, hehe).

Thanks for visiting again!
