National Museum + Planetarium: Photo Diary

Hi folks!

May 13, 2017: It's typical that during summer people tend to go on vacations away from the city. And while we're part of the statistics, my friends/workmates and I also had a little break from the beaches, falls, and long travels. We toured Manila like a tourist and folks, it was fun!

We met up at Rizal Park at around 7 AM, had a quick breakfast/snack then went off to our first itinerary- the Planetarium.

For the whole month of May, Planetarium and the National Museum were offering free admissions! So yes, we took advantage of that. 😁

The queue was long by the time we arrived, but hey free is free! 😁

We watched A Planet for Golidilocks: The Search for a World that is "Just Right". Gave me a stiff neck (Haha!) but it was an entertaining short film.

After the Planetarium, we went to the National Museum of Fine Arts.

I don't usually wander alone because I have a very poor sense of direction (Haha!) but there's something about exploring the halls alone, taking my time to see every exhibit.

I did go with my friends, but we went our separate ways once inside the museum. 😁

Of course, I did not take pictures of every exhibit. That would be insane. Haha! I suggest you visit our national museums too and have a glimpse of our culture and history through these beautiful exhibits!

After the national museums, we then went to Intramuros for another quick Manila adventure. Will have a photo diary of that soon! 😁

That's all folks!
Have a nice day!
