pambansang museo

National Museum of the Philippines is located at Padre Burgos Street, Ermita and it was established on October 4, 1901. The museum proper shares its space with the courts and jail of Manila and the Senate of the Republic. The person responsible for the growth and expansion of the museum was an American who fell in love with the archipelago while serving in the US Navy during World War II. The foundations of its ethnographic collection date back to the St. Louis World's Fair of 1904.

Sorry if the the image is blurry coz this photo was taken using my cellphone's camera. Took it from inside the LRT, the train got some technical problems and it stopped midstation to UN station. I have a confession to make, i still haven't visited this museum. I know i ought to visit this place, but i always find some lame excuse not to. Have you visited a museum lately?

Such a large building. It must be filled with your nation's history. It would be nice to visit it.

First of all your cell-phone is great. Second, your eye too :-). Third, "Museo" is it "museum" said in Filipino? I ask because in Italian "Museum" is just "Museo" :-)
