Miniature Spanish Town and Manunggul Jar

The town of San Diego described by Dr. Jose Rizal in Chapter 10 of the Noli Me Tangere is a microcosm of a typical Spanish pueblo or town. An interactive video presentation of the miniature San Diego comes to life in the Spanish period National Historical Institute.

I’m not sure what museum this picture was taken from (or was it at the National Historical Institute).

A brief note was written at the back of the picture.

The showcase for pre-conquest history of the Philippine includes a replica of the Manunggul jarAmbahan writings on bamboo tubesCalatagan jar and Laguna copperplate which contain ancient inscriptions.

National Museum visit

So hubby and the big kids went to the National Museum last June 17 to check on some artworks as requirement for my daughter’s school project. I was resting and just too tired to join them. Here’s some of the photos that my husband took using his cellphone. (Sorry the photos doesn’t have labels and bit blurry too.)

The trio also went to the National Planetarium but they were not allowed to take pictures inside. I hope I could join them in the next visit.

The National Museum of the Philippines is located at the P. Burgos Drive, Rizal Park, Manila. It is open from Tuesdays-Sundays, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
