Entrance to This Cavite Museum Is Free This Month
Feel like an ilustrado for a day.
(SPOT.ph) Aside from seat sales and huge discounts, another thing that gets us going every year are free-admission museums. And Museo de La Salle down south—and by south, we mean Dasmariñas, Cavite—is opening its doors for free every Saturday of October in celebration of Museums and Galleries Month. You can check out its huge collection of Spanish-era artifacts on October 5, 12, 19, and 26, from 9 a.m to 3:30 p.m.
Museo de La Salle showcases objects commonly found in the home of an ilustrado during the Spanish colonial period. Their 19th-century collection includes antique furniture made of old wood, life-sized religious statues, crystal chandeliers, and rare ceramics. This glimpse into the lifestyle of the affluent is complemented by the museum's architecture: a two-storey building reminiscent of the traditional bahay-na-bato. It’s complete with a grand staircase, an azotea, and a Baroque altar at the center.
Museo de La Salle is at De La Salle University - Dasmariñas, Dasmariñas, Cavite. It is open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission is at P100, except for all Saturdays of October 2019. For more information, follow Museo de La Salle's Facebook.
