"The Rizal Shrine is a modern museum built in 1953 and house the memorabilia of Jose Rizal. Our national hero's cell was in the former Cuarto de Repuesto or storage area and pantry. A model of the cell during his imprisonment is one of the main attractions of the shrine. In 1996, the shrine was renovated as part of the centennial celebration of Rizal's martyrdom and the Philippine Revolution."
Here's what the museum looks inside, this is the ground floor exhibiting Jose Rizal's photos, letters, and other memorabilia. The thin sheets of metal that looks like columns supporting the ceiling actually list down his writings. Sorry for the grainy picture and no photo of the main attraction because the place was so dark and besides i was only sneaking to take photos. After this shot, the guard noticed and approached me and reminded me that i should not take photos to which i responded ok but with no intention of doing so. I dunno why museums forbid picture taking inside. Would you know why?
