The review of the Marikina Shoe Museum inspired me to write my own review of another museum, seldom visited but worth visiting; the Malacañang Museum.
It is located at the Kalayaan Hall of the Malacañang Palace and it houses all sorts of memorabilia of the country's past chief executives starting from Aguinaldo to PNoy. Aside from their personal stuff you also get the chance to visit historic rooms in the Palace such as the first airconditioned office in thr country used by Manuel Quezon, the office where Marcos declared Martial, the balcony where he appeared before fleeing the country and a host of other rooms where former presidents held their cabinet meetings
Other interesting items include an antique image of the blessed mother which said to be an Imelda favorite, the dining set used for state dinners, the Order of Sikatuna medal the highest civilian award conferred by the country, campaign material dating to the early 20th century, exquisite antique Tampingco furniture, and artwork including a European made mural which is purportedly worth $300k.
The nice thing about the place is that the the guided tours can accomodate everybody from a single visitor to a big group.
Quite interesting if you are a museum buff or just wanna learn something about Philippine history.
