The National Museum is home to the cultural heritage and natural history of the Filipino people. In 2014, it was renovated to make way for newly-painted walls and reorganized exhibits. Some of its most popular works are Juan Luna’s Spoliarium, a number of Jose Rizal’s sculptures, and an entire collection of Fernando Amorsolo’s portraits, sketches, and notes.
There is also a temporary exhibit of Benedicto Cabrera’s (BenCab) art currently on display.
The museum is located in Padre Burgos Drive, Manila.
