Malacañang Museum


 



"Malacañang is the palace for the people"
Malacañang Museum


I recently joined the a group and was lucky because it was just about time when they were planning to visit the Malacañang Museum courtesy of Miss Nicely. Please note that if you are planning to visit the place, you have to book ahead of time to be able to visit the place which in out case we were lucky to find a contact who works near the museum. The reservations also include a guide inside the place and only allows one camera per group. On the morning of the tour inside the museum, we were very lucky because Sir Ivan(a popular tour guide around manila and a member of Pinoy Travel Bloggers) was there and permitted us to join his group tour for free. I learned and refreshed a lot on that day about history but I couldn't remember everything today (haha) since I took A WHOLE LOT of time taking pictures on basically everything I can see, I guess that took my concentration? Nevertheless, it was one unforgettable educational experience and memorable first time meet-up with some bagets who treated me like a family. So from 400+ photos down to 200+ photos then reduced it more to 100+ photos and then finally to 76 photos, let me take you to a visual tour to Malacañang Museum on what was caught in my view finder. :)

Nice shots, pwede ba magdala ng tripod sa loob?

Elal | The Shades of Grey said...

@Christian: Sige po. Pag meron ulit! :)

Elal | The Shades of Grey said...

@Redruby: Thank you. The place was splendid. The Malacanang Museum is actually open but it does need reservations first. The Malacanang Palace is strictly closed from the public. :)

lakwatsera de primera: Thank you po. Hmmmmm. That thought did not crossed my mind. Siguro po pero mahirap siya a little kasi you need to set up every now and then while you are on the tour. :)

Malacanang Museum's one of my fave museums in the whole world (not that I've been to an awful lot). They got so much interesting items on exhibit.

Elal | The Shades of Grey said...

I agree po, Ms Gay. I was really amazed by the designs inside the museum and the exhibit as well.

Elal Jane Lasola said...

It is open for the public but you need to book ahead of time and they only allow 1 camera per group.

Good day, Ms. Lasola! This was a very enjoyable post. May I know your email address? I'm working for a government agency and we would like to use some of the pictures you've posted here. Hope to hear from you.
