Interesting insight into the Philippines through fine art Zoltán V Enschede, The Netherlands

Hotels travelers are raving about...

You can find a lot of nineteenth and twentieth century paintings and sculptures here, following international trends (romantic historicism, realistic portraits, some abstract etc.). What I was missing is the real Philippines: only few local faces were depicted, and even the local artists follow the international trends. This is an example of the European and American success in reshaping the countries they try to put their hands on.

Old The museum is quite dated and needs refurbished, but still worth a visit. They had just opened a temporary exhibition on local artists when I visited and this was a very interesting art display.

Fascinating and Educational We went here since there was a day that admission would be free. It definitely was interesting, seeing the Art Gallery and the display/dioramas of the early Filipino people and of old Spanish galleons and artifacts, such as the canons, the gold, the silverware, and the porcelain.

Definitely a must go if you want to learn about the Filipino heritage, though some parts may be boring if you're not into it. Ask SPuen about National Museum 3 Thank SPuen This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

A Great Way To Learn and Be Inspired In Becoming A Filipino Well there are two museums under the National Museum - one is the National Art Gallery and the other is the Museum of the Filipino People.

I usually go here with guests on Sundays and they always say it is interesting although more people like the National Art Gallery than the Museum of the Filipino People.

For the National Art Gallery, I LOVE it by heart because I'm proud of what some of the Filipinos have accomplished and showcased to others over the years. Some people say only the Spoliarium is worth seeing but for me, I love the work of Vicente Manansala (especially the one where it's like the scene in a shore with Spanish colonizers bringing a cross and the creative depiction of cows and carabao's in grass "pink for some"), Botong Francisco (good thing they moved his great work of art from PGH to this place - I think I was the only one who looked at it for many minutes when it was still in the PGH lobby), of course Amorsolo, Hidalgo, joya just to name a few. Even Dr Jose Rizal now has an art exhibit here! (being a sketch artist and a sculptor) I also love Guillermo Tolentino's work! For the Museum of the Filipino People, some people may find the place boring but if you are searching for answers about Filipino heritage, this is the best place to learn it. The San Diego exhibit seems boring for some but with knowledge about the place (and maybe a good tour guide), you'll know how relevant it was in our history as well as world history. The exhibits on the fourth floor are definitely worth checking. I just hope though the outdoor exhibit had more things to showcase - the house is good and maybe the plant/farming exhibit can be realistic (although I'm sure it will be showcased in the Museum of National Wildlife which I hope opens soon). I love bring people to this place and this is way better than being in a mall on a Sunday! Worth not just one trip because I always learn a new thing here everytime I visit. Sunday is free so take the chance to see it! Ask Jessie M about National Museum 5 Thank Jessie M This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
