The National Museum Opens More Doors
Not the new Museum of Natural History yet, though.
(SPOT.ph) When the National Museum of the Philippines announced that admission to the museum would now be permanently free of charge, the otherwise empty facility saw droves of students and guests coming through its doors. This started on July 1, 2016, and it has been a surprising year since.

To celebrate this milestone, the institute on June 30 opened the doors to the National Museum of Anthropology facing Rizal Park. (Note that this museum has always been open but access was limited through the corner driveway facing Taft Avenue and Finance Road. It's the National Museum of Natural History with the eye-catching dome that we're still waiting for.) This means that queues will be spread out and guests can now directly access this repository of artifacts dedicated to archaeology, ethnology, and underwater cultural heritage.
The National Museum of the Philippines is at P. Burgos Avenue, Manila. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Tuesday to Sunday). For more information, follow National Museum on Facebook.
