Save the Date: Yuchengco Museum Announces One-Day Free Admission
No excuse now!
(SPOT.ph) Every year, a number of museums open their doors for free in celebration of International Museum Day. This is also true for the Yuchengco Museum in Makati, which is offering free admission to all exhibitions and galleries on May 18, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
"Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures, and development of mutual understanding, cooperation, and peace among peoples," shares International Council of Museums President Dr. Hans-Martin Hinz. Rightfully so, this year's theme—"Hyperconnected Museums: New Approaches, New Publics"—focuses on engaging the people surrounding these institutions of arts and history in the best way possible.
“Suspended Garden” by Tony Gonzales and Tes Pasola
The Yuchengco Museum houses works by celebrated Filipino artists Juan Luna, Fernando Amorsolo, and Carlos "Botong" Francisco; memorabilia reflecting the Yuchengco family's Chinese heritage; and the Sino-Filpino heritage collection of Alfonso T. Yuchengco, Sr. Among the favorites in the museum is a site-specific installation by Tony Gonzales and Tes Pasola called "Suspended Garden," which is often the subject of guests' IG-worthy shots.
The Yuchengco Museum is at RCBC Plaza, Ayala corner. Sen. Gil J. Puyat Avenues, Makati City. It is open from Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit Yuchengco Museum's website.
