There’s no better way to learn about the past than by looking at the artifacts that tell its stories. To help tell the story of the past, the National Museum of Fine Arts in what was then the Philippines acquired several artifacts from the past—dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Philippine art. This article will provide an overview of the museum and some of the artifacts housed in the museum.
The National Museum of Fine Arts
The National Museum of Fine Arts, formerly known as the National Art Gallery, is home to paintings, sculptures, and other artistic pieces. It’s located on Padre Burgos Avenue across from the National Museum of Anthropology on the eastern side of Rizal Park. The National Art Gallery has exhibitions that cover Philippine art from the 17th to 20th centuries. But if modern and contemporary art is more your thing, don’t worry! You can see that on Level 3.
The Significance of the Museum’s Collections
The Museum’s Collections are important because they tell the story of the very first things humans made. They give insight into what life was like for people back then and show how far our art history has come.
