(SPOT.ph) Intramuros in the City of Manila is going all out in its celebration of Museums and Galleries Month. On October 27, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., museums within the Walled City are opening their doors for free while Plaza Roma is turning into one big party place—minus the loud music (read: tugs-tugs) and laser lights—with street performers marveling the crowd.
Some of the Intramuros sites that are waiving their entrance fees are: Fort Santiago, which costs P75 on a regular day; Museo San Agustin, which has an admission fee of P200; and Destileria Limtuaco Museum, which costs P100 to get in. The Bagumbayan Light and Sound Museum at the corner of Anda and Cabildo Streets is waiving its 150-peso entrance. Activities for the Intramuros Open House also includes free rides on the tranvia, Bambike rentals at Plaza San Luis, GrabWheels rentals at Plaza Roma, and photo walks. Buskers and eco-friendly enterprises are also setting up shop at Plaza Roma.
Intramuros Open House is on October 27, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Intramuros, Manila City. For more information, follow Intramuros Administration on Facebook.
