Another interesting sight is the Museo ng Katipunan at the Pinaglabanan Memorial Shrine in San Juan, an interactive museum on the Katipunan filled with life-size dioramas and other interactive pieces meant to illustrate the legacy of the Kataas-taasang, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan, known as the KKK.

The KKK spread throughout the country, as seen in this interactive map, where each button corresponds to a region and lights up.

Rather than the usual mall and movies routine, spend a weekend at these interesting museums, whether with a date or with a group of friends. It’s always a good idea to trace back history, especially when it’s presented in a fun way. It was definitely a Saturday well spent touring these museums!

A huge thank you to the National Historical Commission of the Philippines for giving these museums a much-needed upgrade and making them timely and interesting for today’s millennials.
