Director’s Message

The premier repository and custodian of the country’s heritage introduces its significant collections, and shares to wider audience online its efforts to protect, conserve, and promote the natural and cultural heritage of the Filipino people. We hope that through this website, we can stimulate your interest to visit us and appreciate in person the legacies that characterize and make up the Filipino identity.

The interdisciplinary nature of the work in the National Museum of the Philippines also encourages exchange of information and collaborative strategies towards achieving its goals as a cultural, scientific, and educational institution. As we make accessible the museum’s resources in the web, we also invite everyone to engage and commit themselves in the continuous endeavors of heritage preservation not only in the Philippines but throughout the world.
