The town of San Diego described by Dr. Jose Rizal in Chapter 10 of theÂ NoliÂ Me Tangere is a microcosm of a typical SpanishÂ pueblo or town. An interactive video presentation of the miniature San Diego comes to life in the Spanish period National Historical Institute.
Iâ€™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 theÂ Manunggul jar,Â Ambahan writings on bamboo tubes,Â Calatagan jarÂ andÂ Laguna copperplateÂ which contain ancient inscriptions.
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
